We have over 200 mobile homes in this park, and just recently opened a new community center for our residents.  The new community center has a computer lab, exercise room, game room and meeting areas.  We are looking for volunteers:

  • Hope Center Hosts – The Hope Center is a 3500 sf community center with a variety of activities, most of which are run by volunteers.  In order for the building to be open, at least three hosts are needed to check families in, be available for questions, and oversee activities.
    Open hours are Monday night 7-8:30 pm; Tuesday and Thursday’s 1-2:30 pm.
  • Mentoring – Having an caring adult from outside of the family walk alongside a young person is one proven key to success!
  • Lead a Group – Do you lead a Cub Scout pack?  How about a community sports league?  Like art or theater?  The young people of Maple Hill would be interested in getting involved with these types of activities and leadership is needed to make that a reality.
  • Create a program!  We know that there are a lot of creative ways that volunteers have come up with to help support the families of Maple Hill Estates.  You might have a great idea for something that could be started.  If so, contact us and let’s see if it can happen!
  • Hospitality/Serve Meals-Throughout the summer we have Taco Tuesday.  If you are interested in providing and serving on a Tuesday night, please contact Jill at Jill@Mobilehopemn.org for more info.
  • Summer School-We will be offering summer school for K-5th grade.  Dates: July 23rd-August 17th (Monday-Thursday)  9am-noon.   If you would like to learn more email: ann.p.deroches@gmail.com
  • Lunch Box Fever-Help pick up and deliver summer lunches to children at Maple Hill Estates.  Monday-Thursday.  If interested in learning more contact Besty Pennuto at 612-710-0936 or email at pennutob@gmail.com

Every six seconds one child dies from hunger related causes.

This is crazy! Especially when you think about the fact that we produce enough food to feed every person in the world over 4 pounds of food everyday!

Something is not right. But you can make a difference.

We have had a WONDERFUL year with Kids Against Hunger!  We have recently sent a container of food into Syria and are so grateful for all the hearts, hands and finances that made that possible.

We are a non-profit organization therefore each group that comes needs to commit to raising finances ahead of time for their event to cover the cost of the product that they will pack.  A teenager/adult can pack $50 worth of product during an event and children can pack $25 in product.  At our facility we can host up to 60 people packing at one time.  If you have more than 50 people and are fully funded we are glad to make arrangements to come to your location to do an event. 

Youth With A Mission/Kids Against Hunger makes it easy.  We have the equipment, expertise and can order the raw materials needed to pack food for the needy.

Come & make a difference!!
