How can I help hungry people this summer?


As summer sets in, we often associate it with sunny vacations and carefree days. However, for many families, the summer months bring about a pressing concern: access to food. Food shelf services play a vital role in bridging the gap during this time, ensuring that children and their families have access to nutritious meals. According to recent statistics, Minnesota food shelves have witnessed a staggering rise in demand, with an estimated 30% increase in usage over the past year alone. This statistic highlights the critical role that food shelf services play in combating hunger and food insecurity in the state.

Help Stuff the Bus!

Stuff the Bus 2023 is HERE and we couldn't be more excited to support this effort to help get much-needed school supplies in the hands of families in the Stillwater area. 


Donations of new school supplies will be collected through August 6.



Valley Outreach is not a drop off location, but many of our nonprofit partners are. You CAN drop your school supplies off at United Way Washington County East (our neighbor on Curve Crest Blvd.), Community Thread, or one of the many donation sites around Stillwater, MN.

Disability Pride Month

July is Disability Pride Month. It marks the 1990 enactment of the Americans with Disabilities Act, a landmark U.S. rights law that extended civil rights protections to persons with disabilities.


Valley Outreach recognizes the remarkable impact individuals with disabilities have made on our community and embraces both visible and invisible disabilities, emphasizing the importance of recognizing and appreciating the diverse abilities of all individuals.


Valley Outreach aims to create a society where everyone's unique contributions are valued and celebrated, fostering an environment of inclusivity and understanding.
