CROSS is a 501c3 non-profit organization established in 1977 to provide food and clothing to those in temporary need. We serve families and individuals living in the Champlin (West), Corcoran, Dayton, Maple Grove, Osseo, and Rogers communities of Minnesota. We are supported by community donations.
CROSS is committed to serving families and individuals in times of need by providing mercy and compassionate supportive services.
In addition to designated offerings from the congregation, the CCC children collect a Joyful Noise offering once a month. These offerings are used to fund the Kidpack weekend food assistance program coordinated thought CROSS. CCC packs 320 snack bags each month for a school in the Osseo School District. Our financial commitment is $6,000 per year. The Joyful Noise offering and the Kidpack packing are normally scheduled on the 3rd Sunday of the month.
Due to COVID-19, the CROSS Kidpack program has been suspended for the 2021-2022 school year.
Simpson Shelter Sandwiches
Join us after Snak & Yak to make sandwiches for the Simpson Shelter. CCC makes 125 sandwiches each month for the homeless individuals to take with them as they leave in the morning from their overnight stay at the shelter in Minneapolis. The Simpson sandwich making is normally scheduled on the 2nd Sunday of each month.
Due to COVID-19, the Simpson Shelter has suspended requests for sandwiches.
Mitten and Sock Tree
The adult gloves, hats and socks are donated to the Simpson Shelter; the youth mittens, hats and scarves are donated to CROSS.
