Contribute Goods

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

Because the needs of the families we serve are constantly in flux, our donation priorities will shift to meet those needs. Due to storage constraints, we are only able to accept new items and limited amounts of gently used goods that fit our current needs.


Peanut butter, jelly, canned fruit, canned beans, pasta sauces, cake mixes, frostings, syrup, canned chicken, canned meat, noodles, creamy soups, baked beans, ketchup, mustards, BBQ sauce, condiments, flour, sugar, bulk-sized cereals, kids snacks, mac-n-cheese, individual-serving chips, individual-serving snacks, brownie mixes, bar mixes, cookie mixes, and microwave popcorn.
