The Scott-Carver-Dakota CAP Agency is seeking donations of hand sanitizer, toilet paper, diapers, and wipes for the families in our community they serve. They are especially in need of hand sanitizer to provide to their volunteer drivers when delivering meals to seniors.

CAP is also asking for donations of emergency kits for local families in need. These bags would include the following items:

  • Dish soap
  • Tissues/Kleenex
  • Toilet Paper
  • Paper Towels

Other item suggestions: coloring books, puzzle books, puzzles, blank greeting cards/notecards, gift cards for grocery stores or pharmacies.

Donations can be dropped off at CAP Agency (712 Canterbury Rd South, Shakopee). The donation door is open Monday-Friday from 8 AM - 3:30 PM. Note: The Thrift Shop is currently closed, so they are not accepting Thrift Shop donations at this time.  Visit the CAP Agency’s website here.
