Community Thread’s Community Response

During the initial phases of the COVID-19 pandemic, Community Thread matched volunteers to people in the Stillwater Area School District (#834) who requested special assistance to support them in coping with the changes our community experienced. We continue to support our neighbors in need through our regular programs and with referrals to other agencies designed to support special needs as the pandemic continues.

Request Assistance

Free Face Masks – Thanks to support from our talented neighbors and generous partners, we have face masks available at no cost. If you are in need of a face mask, please call us at 651-439-7434 to schedule a contact-free pick-up at our Stillwater location.

Community Services – Our Chore Services & Transportation Program connects older adults and adults with disabilities living in the Stillwater Area School District (#834) to trained volunteers who assist them with home maintenance tasks and rides to medical appointments. Please contact Cathy at Transportation@CommunityThreadMN.org to see if you qualify for these services.

PLEASE NOTE: Registration takes several business days and we will not be able to fulfill immediate requests for services.

Social Connections – Our Older Adult Program hosts engaging events and activities designed to enhance well-being through social connections. Please click here to visit the calendar of upcoming events or contact Kim at Kimm@CommunityThreadMN.org to learn more about the in-person and virtual opportunities currently available.

Referrals – If we are unable to provide the type of assistance you are seeking, we may be able to refer you to other service providers. If you have a need you do not see listed on this page, please call us at 651-439-7434 and we will help you as best we can.
