Virtual Angel Tree is Up!
Monday, November 16, through Monday, December 7

Every year Hennepin partners with Refugee Services at the Minnesota Council of Churches to provide Christmas gifts for children who have resettled in the Twin Cities over the past year. Every year, these families are blessed by the generosity of the Hennepin community. It has been a tough year for so many, and especially for those who are new to our country.

To minimize health risks for all, we're going virtual with the Angel Tree gift assignments this year.

Please click on this link to sign up to shop for one of these children, or for a whole family. Please deliver unwrapped gifts with the child's name/family number to the East Entry of Hennepin by Monday, December 7. Current building hours are 8am-4pm Mon-Fri.

Refugee Services recommends shopping for something warm (hats, scarves, gloves, warm socks), something fun (toys, games, soccer balls, cell phone chargers, ear buds, etc), and something for learning (games, books, puzzles, etc.)

Thank you for being a blessing!
