On-Going Needs at Launch Ministry

This model is wearing clothes donated by you!

We are often asked what is needed to provide hospitality at the drop-in center and stretch the meager budgets of the young adults trying to be financially and socially independent.  Thank you for your continued support!  Below is our on-going needs list – both our  main list for Chaska Drop In, and our Mobile Drop In version.

Donation Drop Off Options:  Click Here

Items we are always in need of: $10 gift cards, full-sized shampoo, men’s deodorant, bottles of water, food storage/take-out containers, cleaning supplies, smaller sized laundry detergent, and microwavable meals (non-refrigerated).  Portable phone chargers are often requested by our “clients” need to keep their phones charged in order to respond to job offers and housing options.

At this time we do not need new sources of tie-blankets or Blessing Bags.  Thank you!  However – we could use Blessing Bags with a focus on laundry supplies, cleaning supplies, etc.  Contact Stephanie for more information.

A note about clothing:  We are blessed by receiving amazing selection of items for individuals to choose from.  Please remember:  Clean, age appropriate, no swimwear, and seasonal only.   To ensure that our young adults feel that they are blessed by your donations, please wash items before dropping them off.

If you are in Chaska area, please donate any other clothing to the RAK at the corner of Chaska Blvd. and Audubon  or Trending Upward Thrift Shoppe in Waconia between Wallgreens & Jimmy Johns on 5.

  1. Hello, who can I talk to about looking into your ministry, Launch? I am the local outreach director of City Hill Church in Eden Prairie. I’m always looking for “hands on” mobilization of our membership to help those in need. We are currently working with IN Love, Word & Deed, a homeless ministry in downtown Mpls. I’d like someone to call me so we can chat and I can learn more about your ministry/organization. Are you a Christian based ministry/organization? Thank you, Kurt Ullrich.

    • Hi Kurt! This is Corey, director of Launch Ministry. We’d love to get connected with you (and have a number of friends who have been part of City Hill currently and in the past). If our volunteer coordinator Stephanie hasn’t contacted you yet, she will soon. Looking forward to figuring out how to partner together!
