07 Jan Lakeville Children Experience A Day in The Park with Toy Donation
Organization: Hosanna Lutheran Church of Lakeville
Lives Impacted: 2500
Hosanna Lutheran Church of Lakeville located in Minneapolis, is a South Metro Church looking to help people grow in their religious relationships. We believe that growing in faith is a lifelong journey, and wherever people are on that journey, they are welcome here. As a church, we continually see the lives of adults and kids transformed by regularly attending weekend worship, classes, Bible studies and small groups in one of our 2 locations, Lakeville or Shakopee.
This past summer we partnered with the North Minneapolis Police department to give toys and items to the children in the community. We held an event in the park where we provided food and toys to over 2500 people. We handed out bicycles and bouncy balls to the children to take home after they enjoyed a day of BBQ, bouncy houses and outdoor activities. Our goal with this event was to try and bring a sense of unity back to the community instead of division and thanks to these donations, we were able to give back to the underprivileged children for a day!
