2017 MARCH CAMPAIGN
PACK THE PEWS
MARCH 24 - 26, 2017
Pack the Pews is a highlighted weekend during both the Minnesota FoodShare March Campaign and the Harvest Campaign and is an opportunity to come together as people of faith in the fight to end hunger. Some faith partners participate in the March or Harvest Campaigns by collecting throughout the entire Campaign, but designate this weekend as a final push to bring in food and funds. Others focus their efforts solely on Pack the Pews weekend, which is a great way to unite with faith partners across the state in participating in the March or Harvest Campaigns.
Join Minnesota FoodShare and communities of faith: Pack the Pews to end hunger! Visit our Resources page for bulletin inserts or to order March Campaign posters.

Kinshoppe is an opportunity for families to partake in a family tradition that low income families report they are unable to do with their limited income. It is an event for Kinship kids and siblings to select, wrap and take home age, gender appropriate gifts to put under their tree for each other and their parents or caregivers. They have a wide selection of items so they can select based on what they know about their family member. Individual volunteers guide them along as the information of the family member is provided. During a season of “Me Me Me” we try to intentionally provide a spirit of giving.
Kinshoppe includes many partnerships to make this day a celebration; MN Trucking Association collects and provides the toys and gifts, Churches who provide the facility, Minneapolis Junior League provided enough books for each child to make their own home library, volunteers who provided goodies for the day and hundreds of volunteers, many who return year after year because they enjoy helping to bring the experience of“ giving to others” to the kids.
In 2014 208 kids shopped and wrapped for approximately 478 siblings and 247 parents or guardians. We were helped with over 105 “Christmas elves” volunteers to make this day happen without counting the many MN Trucking Asociation members who did the toy collections, donations, sorting and delivering.
