PRISM Food Shelf and St. Joe’s has a long history, with PRISM’s founding roots beginning here over 30 years ago. St. Joe’s is a member of PRISM’s Faith Partner Board and contributes financially to PRISM each year as a part of the parish tithe. The parish holds a Food and Funds collection on the second Sunday of each month, a yearly collection of school supplies in August and winter coats during October and November. The St. Joe’s Reps organize a Sharing Tree during Advent that collects toys and gift certificates/cards for PRISM’s Holiday Shop. Volunteers from the parish assist clients at their food shelf or thrift store (Shop for Change). For more information about volunteer opportunities please contact PRISM - 763.529.1350. PRISM is located at 730 Florida Ave S., Golden Valley.
