serve right where you are  | June 2020


During this difficult time, it is especially important that we come around communities in tangible and practical ways. During the month of June, we invite you to join us in partnering with Mobile Hope as they seek to support families in need and protect one of our most vulnerable populations at this time: children.

how to get involved

We encourage you to "Serve Right Where You Are" by inviting your neighbors and friends to participate in our Mobile Hope Food Drive.


A great way to involve others is to share this opportunity via community Facebook groups and other social media networks (Nextdoor, etc.). The graphic above can be shared (click here) along with any collection details you provide. (For example: You can offer to pick up items on a certain day/time from driveways of those who want to participate, or have them drop off items at yours!) 

  • Donations will be accepted at Wayzata Free Church during regular business hours (Monday-Friday between 9:00 am-4:00 pm) throughout the month of June. You will see a designated collection area by Door #1 (main entrance). If you would like help getting larger donations to the church, please let us know. Meal Connect has generously offered to help us with transporting items.

         Note: We will be sorting, delivering, and staging the items for Mobile Hope based on their preferred  
         timeline. We ask that you NOT deliver items directly to their site.

  • If you'd like to make a financial contribution, click here, and select FOOD DRIVE JUNE 2020 from the designation drop-down menu. Your contributions will be used to purchase needed items.
