Contribute Goods

Alexandra House is a secure facility as our participant safety is of the utmost importance. Therefore, we are unable to accept unscheduled donations. You must schedule a donation appointment to ensure staff members are aware and ready for visitors to the shelter. Unscheduled donation drop-offs will not be accepted. For donation inquiries or to schedule an appointment, email or call 763-795-5473. 

Holiday Shop

From November 1st – January 24th, Alexandra House switches to only accepting new items to focus on our Holiday Shop. The Holiday Shop is for any family that has used ANY of our services over the last year. Those families are able to “shop” for each other (all gifts are free-of-charge) and enjoy cookies and hot chocolate. During this period of time, we look to our community members to hold drives and donate new items on our Holiday Wish listed. We’d love to have your support. You can learn more about our Holiday Shop here. At this time we are only accepting items off our Urgent Needs and Holiday Wish lists.

URGENT needs:

  • Women’s razors
  • Shaving cream
  • Kid’s Toothpaste
  • Queen and Full-size sheet sets
  • Pillows
  • Paper towels
  • Hand soap
  • Low cut women’ ankle socks
  • Small girl’s socks

Contactless DONATION Drop-off and Hours:
