What We Do:

Community Meals – Free meals at the Spirit Lake Senior and Community Center every Tuesday from 4:30-6:30 p.m.

Summer Weekend Free Lunch Program for Kids – Starting the first Saturday of summer vaction for Lakeland School District we serve lunch and give out weekend bags every Saturday until school starts back up in Spirit Lake’s Big Park starting at 11:30 a.m.

School Clothes Closets – During the school year, we help keep our schools’ clothes closets well-stocked with items the kids might need.

Buddy Bags – Our emergency responders often come into contact with children who are dealing with traumatic or tough situations.  Cup of Grace provides “Buddy Bags” that can be carried in their vehicles and provided to children during these scary and stressful experiences

Diaper Bank Program  – We operate a Diaper Bank for single moms and families who need diapers for their little ones.  We reduce mom’s stress level by helping to keep those cute little tushes covered!

Why We Do It:

We are working to strengthen our community and provide the people of Spirit Lake and the surrounding areas with access to food, clothing, and social services.  We encourage people to get acquainted with each other and help one another, so that no one has to rely solely on government programs or outside agencies for help during difficult times.  We strive to step up and meet the needs of our neighbors, whatever they may be.
