Admin Message

 

Community members, including traditionally under-served communities, low-income families, seniors, people with disabilities, and racial and ethnic minorities. LifeGate Services Executive Director, Tope Dosumu, said that some of their biggest needs are cereal or oatmeal, canned fruits and vegetables, and canned protein. Cash donations help us purchase cultural food for our BIPOC shoppers. Attached to this email is a longer document that shows more items for the drive. 

 The collection drive will run from Monday, November 27 to Friday, December 15. Donations will be collected at Rochester Area Foundation’s front lobby, located at 12 Elton Hills Drive NW, Rochester, MN 55901. 

On Saturday, December 16, beginning at 9:30 a.m., we will have the BIPOC Professionals Cohort group help distribute items as part of LifeGate’s food shelf operation. This will go until about 11:30 a.m. Additionally, LifeGate has requested additional support at 10 a.m. on Friday, December 15 to sort and stock items that are delivered from Channel One in preparation for the Saturday food shelf being open.

If you are interested in donating or volunteering to support folks in our community this winter, please send an email to me, Asha, the Coordinator for the Commitment to Racial Justice, at [email protected].

About Beam
  • For the commercial sector, we tend to register startup activities (new companies and new commercial projects) that bring diversification and high-impact opportunities to the area.
  • For the non-profit sector, we wish to shine light on all the organizations and services that otherwise labor under relative obscurity.
  • Our hope is that dmcbeam.org will encourage cross-sector collaborations and creative solutions.

While there are a number of registries in the community, dmcbeam.org's  distinct value is to pilot a database with a data structure and categorizations that answer the questions such as: What organizations or projects/programs in our community that have purported relevance with some of the over-arching focuses put forward by initiatives such as DMC, J2G and Health Improvements?

This database could be used as one of the ways to explore the capacities of the community. If you are someone on an exploratory journey to learn about the greater Rochester community. dmcbeam.org could be an interesting first step.
