Help make summer fun!

Updated: Jun 23, 2020

A typical summer at Sojourner Shelter would bring trips to the pool, outings to amusement parks and fun children's programming supported by creative volunteers and interns. Unfortunately, because of COVID-19, many of the field trip sites are closed, our ability to safely transport families is challenged and we aren't able to host volunteers or interns at our site. All of this means that we have some very bored kiddos and families!

We are in need of the following:

Indoor Toys (new or very gently used):

  • Children’s puzzles

  • Board games for younger children

  • Card games (like Uno)

  • Fidget spinners

  • Magic kits (new)

  • Lego sets (new)

Art Supplies (new):

  • Washable paint

  • Large white paper

  • Arts and crafts kits

  • Slime making supplies

  • Kid-friendly tie-dye kits

Outdoor Toys (new or very gently used)

  • Kid's adjustable basketball hoop

  • Splash pad

  • Jump Ropes

Visit our Target Registry to send items directly to the kids. Prefer Amazon? We have a registry there too!

You can also purchase items at your local store, organize a drive or look for very gently used items and then schedule a no-contact delivery by emailing or calling 952-351-4067.

Target gift cards can be mailed to P.O. Box 272, Hopkins, MN 55343 or emailed to

Thank you SO much for helping support the children we serve. Children are remarkably resilient and we know that creating a positive and joyful environment helps support their growth!
