Connections Ministry Volunteer Opportunity

We once again have the opportunity to serve the Connections Shelter. What a blessing that we can be the hands and feet of Jesus and serve those who are experiencing homelessness in our city. Hosanna has been assigned the week of February 14th-20th. There are many opportunities for everyone to serve this season – those with minimal contact, direct contact, or no contact at all.

The shelter’s new address is:

First Presbyterian Church

220 East Hickory Street

Mankato, MN. 


To sign up for a shift,  select a meal, serving position, or morning volunteer shift. Again, Hosanna’s week is February 14th-20th. Make sure to scroll down to find the correct dates.

After signing up you will receive a confirmation email including important information for your specific area of service and another e-mail from the shelter for your background check, which is required to serve.
