Connect Local & Global Mission

CrossRoads Cares Initiative

How you can help:

You can donate food, hygiene items, and activity items on Mon-Fri 8:30am - 7pm that will be used for care packages that will be delivered to homes within our Central Alberta community. Fresh or Perishable items to be donated Mon-Fri 8:30am - 4:30pm.


THANK YOU to the 200+ who are volunteering currently to pack, sort, and deliver! We are so overwhelmed by the support of the community. With tight restrictions on how many people can be in the same space at once, we are in a position to be creative in utilizing those who graciously volunteer. With that being said, at this time, we no longer need volunteers for these roles. We hope to be intentional with your kindness and willingness to serve, using it wisely. We will let you know when more volunteers are needed. But for now, thank you!

If you are interested in being involved in other ways, please contact us by emailing

If you have items to donate,  drop-off is done at CrossRoads Church. Please follow ALL posted signs for direction and health. If you are currently isolating due to presentation of symptoms, not feeling well, or in contact with someone who is not well, please have your delivery made by another.
