Ways to Give

CEAP is an expert in helping our community members meet their basic needs, from diapers and formula for our youngest neighbors to nutritious meals and wellness check-ins for our homebound neighbors. That's why we fall into GiveMN's Focus Areas for the SpringForward campaign.  

Now through May 11, you can support your neighbors by giving to CEAP and help us reach our goal of raising $11,000 in 11 days. CEAP is committed to helping kids PlayStrong, GrowStrong, and LearnStrong, especially with what’s going on in our world right now. This summer we’ll be distributing CEAP Essentials: Kid’s Edition, complete with kids’ favorite meals. Your $25 donation funds one CEAP Essentials: Kid’s Edition for a child in our community.  

For many children, a break from school means a break from much-needed structure and a safe place to play, grow, and learn. During the summer, kids don’t have the support of free and reduced lunch at school. Many children’s worlds have been turned upside down by challenges like virtual learning and separation from friends and family, and they’ve had to navigate the pandemic with the same confusion and uncertainty many of us are experiencing. How many kids can you help nourish today?
