CROSS First Friday / Spirit Wear

What is CROSS?

CROSS is a non-profit organization established in 1977 to provide food and clothing to those in temporary need. We serve the Northwest Hennepin County communities of West Champlin, Corcoran, Dayton, Hassan, Maple Grove, Osseo, & Rogers. CROSS is supported entirely by church, county, individual and community donations. CROSS serves an average of 525 families monthly. More than 50% of adult food shelf clients work; 35% are retired or have a disability which prevents work.


CROSS food collections are the first Friday of each month. We hope to collect at least 260 items each month!

First Friday Spirit Wear Day is a way to thank our students for contributing food items to benefit those in need in our community.

Students who bring in two or more non-perishable food items earn the privilege of wearing Spirit Wear.

Thank you for your generosity!


For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me… I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.

Matthew 25:35-36, 40
