Community Action Center of Northfield (CAC)

Fulfilling our neighbors' basic needs



June 8, 2010

We are fortunate that many in our community want to help the clients of the CAC in tangible ways. Here are just a few ways that individuals or groups can help:

Birthday bags:  Create a bag that includes items a parent needs to host a child’s birthday party.  It may include a cake mix, party plates and napkins, and party favors.

Camper kits:  The kids we send to camp need sleeping bags, beach towels, sunscreen, and insect repellant.

Hygiene kits:  Make a personal hygiene kit for those staying in our homeless shelter.  Items such as combs, toothbrushes, and shampoo are needed.

Quilts and Afghans:  Sew or knit quilts or afghans that each family is given at Christmas Sharing.

Reusable grocery bags:  Sew fabric bags that foodshelf customers can re-use each month.

If you or your work, church, or school group is interested in helping in these ways or, if you have another idea, please contact us!
