Sharing and Caring Hands in Minneapolis is a candle in the window for those in need. I have volunteered on and off for almost 15 years and it's doors are open to those in most need. There are few requirements to enter, no drugs, no alcohol and a prayer before eating it's that simple. Everything that you donate goes to those who need it most. I have been blessed to work with Mary Jo and her staff and look forward to the day when we won't need to feed the hungry, or clothe the poor or shelter the homeless (the shelter is actually at Mary's Place across the street for families). Until that day comes, Mary Jo and her team will keep a candle burning. God Bless

Do you want to recieve more then you give? This is the place to go! The staff and the organization that provides the many services to those that can not afford them,are just wonderful!! The spirit of cooperation amongst everyone is just uplifting!! Everyone pitches in for a common goal...to serve your brothers and sisters in need! Mary Jo is truly a leader! She sets the example by the way she lives her life. Every meal is started in action by Mary Jo delivering a message to eveyone, volunteers and those in need...all at once. Her message is inspirational and talks about a positive future for those who want it.
She is truly compassionate, giving individual. The world could use more people like this...giving instead of wanting!! It is a great experience. I encourage you to get involved, to truly know the blessings being delivered.
Hats off to the "Tuesday Crew" for their great committment and help every Tuesday since a long time ago!!
