On Sunday September 28 at 5:30, Open Hands will hold our annual Fundraiser dinner at Redeemer Lutheran Church in White Bear Lake.  Redeemer is located at 3770 Bellaire Ave.  This year we have a special guest speaker, former Minnesota Governor Al Quie.  There will be a catered dinner and a silent auction. If you are not on our mailing list and would like to attend the dinner, please contact us at info@openhandsmidway.org OR call 651-646-6549 to sign up.  The cost is 25.0o per person with a portion of it going towards the dinner and a portion will be used for the ministry of Open Hands.


The Produce Distribution continues through September 24.  This event is held each week on Wednesday from 12-2. Anyone can come to receive fresh produce and it is all FREE of charge. It is also an opportunity for volunteers to serve the community.  Each Wednesday, Second Harvest drops off anywhere from 10-13,000 pounds of fresh produce in the parking lot.  Then many volunteers set up tents and tables, sort the produce, place it on the tables and then staff the distribution.  Volunteers work in two shifts from 9-11:30 is the first and from 12-2:30 is the second.  If you are interested in volunteering for this please contact Steve Slostad or Kay Kuehn at 651-646-6549 or by email at info@openhandsmidway.org  This is a great volunteer project for your church, a Bible study group, your family or just yourself.
