Build a Kitchen Kit: Some families who come to the PROP Shop are starting over and need kitchen essentials to get started. Follow these steps described by local Girl Scouts who created this project for their Silver Awards.

Bakers: Our events usually involve homemade treats, and we need your help to provide them. If you like to bake, sign up by emailing, and we’ll request your help via email as needed. Then let us know what, if anything, you would like to make.

Secret Shoppers: Sign up to receive periodic emails listing specific items needed by local families in need. If there is an item you are willing to purchase, just email back and purchase the item within a week or so. You can opt out any time. Sign up or find out more by contacting

LARK Groups: Ladies Acts of Random Kindness (LARK) groups adopt one month a year. When it’s your group’s month, we inform you of a need (a double stroller, a vacuum cleaner, etc.). If your group is interested, you ask for a donation from everyone the next time you meet and then purchase the needed item for the PROP Shop.

Knitters: Our clients always need dish cloths, pot holders, winter hats, and mittens.

Donation Drive: Organize a drive for a particular item the PROP Shop is in need of. Past groups have collected utensils, coats, kitchen-ware, etc. Send an email to or call 952-224-7051 to discuss details.

Fundraisers: Host or plan a fundraiser. This can be a small gathering or a big blow out. You let us know what you have in mind and we’ll help you every step of the way.

Community Group Liaison: Arrange for a PROP Shop speaker at your next gathering or set up a tour of the PROP Shop for your group.

Please email for more information about any of these programs.
