CEAP Expanding Services To Brooklyn Park
The nonprofit CEAP is expanding its services to Brooklyn Park. CEAP, or Community Emergency Assistance Programs, is opening a second free food market in the hunger relief center built by Second Harvest Heartland. The new location on Winnetka Avenue will allow the nonprofit to serve more people.
“We are here for our neighbors, and because we’re funded by neighbors, it’s really neighbors helping neighbors” said Clare Brumback, president at CEAP. “Whether that’s a job loss, or needing food or needing support or needing counseling, all kinds of reasons you can reach out. And we’re here to get you the resources you need.”
CEAP’s other location is in Brooklyn Center. The second location in Brooklyn Park will open next spring.
Meanwhile, CEAP has an fundraising goal of $250,000 to have everything it needs for the new spot. The organization is also participating in Give to the Max Day, with a fundraising goal of $25,000.
