Gifts and In Kind Donations

To arrange a drop-off for the Minneapolis Life Center, please email or call Dave Yajko at dave@changingourcity.org or 612-255-8843.

If you have an idea of something to donate that is not listed here, feel free to contact us! We are always looking for items to help people moving into apartments from the shelter, to give away as prizes during outreaches, and to resell through our job training program, Monique's Boutique.
