Keystone continues to operate our food shelf, crisis services, meals on wheels and case management programs that support our most vulnerable residents in St. Paul. If you know someone who needs support during this time, please refer them to Keystone and we’ll get them connected to services as we are able. Visit keystoneservices.org for full program information.
Give: Your financial support gives us the greatest flexibility to purchase food for our food shelves and keep our programs operational for our community. See the website: keystoneservices.org.
Contribute: In-kind contributions of food and household items will be immediately distributed to neighbors in need. Donation bins are outside of our two community centers – West 7th Community Center (located 265 Oneida Street, St. Paul) and Merriam Park Community Center (located at 2000 St. Anthony Avenue, St. Paul) – and we are accepting donations. We are asking people NOT to donate at our food shelf sites due to the social distance guidelines we are following and to minimize interaction with the general public. Donation bins are available Monday – Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Our most needed items include: toilet paper, bar soap, hand sanitizer, peanut butter, canned tuna, soup, boxed dinners, cereal, snack foods.
Volunteer: Our volunteers are amazing and are stepping up in huge ways! If you find yourself with extra free time and want to start volunteering, please submit a volunteer application to get started. At this time, we need volunteers primarily at our food shelves helping us pre-pack food bags for distribution. Volunteer shifts are Monday – Friday and shifts vary from 2-4 hours in length at our food shelves.
We will be open as long as possible and are practicing all of the guidelines set forth by the MN Department of Health to maintain safety for our staff, volunteers and participants. We will continue to share information via our website, social media, and e-mail communication.
