Simpson Shelter

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.
