Get ready to make the holidays merry and bright for local teens, tweens, and families in need. The Mendota Heights Police Department is collecting unwrapped gifts for youth, ages ten to eighteen, to benefit A Place of Hope. Items donated provide a holiday shopping experience for families in Dakota and Washington Counties in need. Gift bundles of $30 to $40, and $5 stocking stuffers are preferred. Cash donations are also accepted.
With grocery prices on the rise, shelf-stable food, toiletries, and gift cards to local grocery stores are also being collected to benefit Neighbors, Inc. throughout the holiday season.
Drop off donations in the collection bins at Mendota Heights City Hall during business hours: Monday through Friday, from 7 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. After 11:30 a.m. on Fridays please deliver gifts via the MHPD lobby entrance located on the north side of City Hall; park in the north parking lot off of Lexington Ave S.
