Easter Lutheran, with Dakota County and a coalition of local churches, has opened an emergency shelter for our Dakota County neighbors who don’t have anywhere to stay during the cold weather. The shelter will be open all day, everyday through January 27 at Easter by the Lake (4545 Pilot Knob Road, Eagan at the corner of Pilot Knob and Cliff Road). Call 612-239-8910 if you’re in need of shelter or a ride to the shelter.
Also, Easter needs volunteers to help the shelter staff (you’ll be trained when you arrive) and help with basic meal prep. You need to be 18-years-old or older to volunteer with the shelter or meal prep. An adult must accompany youth ages 10-18.
