River Market partners with Valley Outreach to help those in need in our community. We have collection bins at the front of the store for food and clothing.
Valley Outreach has been feeding our hungry neighbors since 1983 and assisting our neighbors in need with other basic services (clothing, household essentials, and emergency financial assistance) since 2005. Before 2005, we were known as the St. Croix Valley Food Shelf and the St. Croix Emergency Food Shelf.
We currently are giving more than 40,000 pounds of food to nearly 400 hungry households every month through our Food Shelf, giving clothing, accessories, and household essentials to more than 350 households every month through Dawn’s Closet, and giving an average of $6,500 in emergency financial assistance to about 25 households each month through our Emergency Fund.
