Neighbors, Inc. serves the community in Northern Dakota county who might be experiencing emergency or food insecurity. In response to the COVID-19 Pandemic, we are focusing our efforts in serving families through our monthly food shelf. Residents can call in to request assistance, we will pre-pack food and personal care items to be used in the coming month. We are serving an average of 40 households a day. One of the items in high demand is laundry detergent. Volunteers who are willing to purchase supplies can break down bulk powdered (or pods) laundry detergent into snack or sandwich size baggies for distribution. When you are able to drop these packages off, please label the boxes as "Laundry Detergent," and we will add labels before distribution.
