Northwood has partnered with Community Assistance Program to help those in need of clothing prepare for the coming winter season. You can drop off coat donations at our church. Community Assistance Program also has many other valuable services for our Blaine community that we enthusiastically support including the clothing bank, community toy store, and crisis assistance.

Every thanksgiving, there are many local families wanting to celebrate with all the fixings but find it’s not in their budget to enjoy many of the comforts of the holiday that we might take for granted. That’s why each year we help raise money for the Community Assistance Program to make and distribute baskets all across Blaine.
Jesus taught compassion for those who are in need. There are many in our community that struggle with basic provisions such as food and clothing. Twenty years ago, the local food bank came to us in need of a place to store donations and distribute food to our community. This led to Northwood donating a portion of our property and opening our parking lot three times a week for food distribution. Many in our church, including our pastor, volunteer there too. It is a blessing to get to be part of such a helpful, meaningful, and fulfilling cause: Neighbors helping neighbors!
