    Street Cards Connect Volunteers

    Lead by:
    Andrea Bert • streetcardsmpls@gmail.com • (612) 437-1964
    What we will be doing:

    Together we will be walking and/or busing to spend time with people experiencing homelessness. We will hear their stories, donate gift cards to help meet their needs, and spend time being relational with a population that often feels ignored and dehumanized. Admission to come with is one $10 gift card to any store, café, salon, etc. of your choice. You're welcome to bring more as you're able. I also recommend wearing comfortable shoes and weather appropriate clothing. Getting out on the streets and connecting with the community around us is a blessing on both ends. We would love to have you come with us! Feel free to email, call, or text me anytime with questions regarding our connect group and/or Street Cards in general.

    June 9th, July 14th, August 11th. Times are TBD - we will contact you via email or phone with details.
    We will meet-up at Corner Coffee North Loop



    Registration is not a undying commitment, but a way for the Connection Group leaders to get you the information you need.
