In August Zion member Ingrid Norquist organized a diaper drive to call our attention to the special needs of communities surrounding Holy Trinity Lutheran Church in South Minneapolis. In recent weeks, communities in the Minneapolis area have experienced great trauma leaving many individuals in a “food desert” and/or lacking basic hygiene products. Holy Trinity Lutheran Church has been providing for their community, which is especially vulnerable during this time, with essential food and hygiene products with the help of volunteers who currently gather twice a week.

To support Holy Trinity’s efforts, Ingrid urged the Zion community to become involved and to meet a goal of collecting 100 boxes of Size 6 diapers by August 25. The response was immediate and overwhelming! Diapers were dropped off to the church office during the week or at the drive-in worship services on Sunday mornings. By the end of the month, Zion had exceed it’s goal of 100 boxes by collecting 109 boxes of diapers! Thank you to all of you who contributed to this important community service project! Special thanks to Ingrid for her insight and determination to help those in need! See below for a thank you from her.

Zion Congregation,

Thank you for your generous donations of diapers. As a church, we collected more than 109 boxes of diapers!! The diapers have been brought to Holy Trinity Lutheran Church and distributed to community members in South Minneapolis who are especially vulnerable during this time. Each and every donation of diapers truly means the world to our brothers and sisters who are receiving them. Thank you all again!! Ingrid Norquist
