Generosity was OVERFLOWING in the Holiday gift shop at Easter Lutheran church in Eagan! Led by organizer Karen Raasch, volunteers from Easter and other churches—like Mount Calvary and St. Thomas Becket—and from businesses like Inside Edge helped Open Door families choose gifts and wrap them. Volunteer Julie Schroeder organized a wonderful craft area for kids to color and make sock snowmen. Cider and treats were available and dinner was served both nights through Easter’s Loaves and Fishes outreach.
426 Families were able to shop!
1,795 adults and children received gifts!
2,900 gifts were chosen and wrapped!
450 blankets were also given out, along with hundreds of hats, gloves and other winter gear, many hand-made!
