Past events

Adopt a Family

With the grace and blessings of Saibaba, the Prayer Center volunteers have been participating, since 2002, in Adopt-A-Family program with the generous contributions and help from Sai devotees. In this program, the Prayer Center is working with local Church "Kinship of Greater Minneapolis" to help a few needy children by fulfilling the family wish list consisting of items such as clothes, toys, small appliances and other gift items befitting the Holidays.

The Saibaba Mandir participated every year from 2002 till 2010 and has received letters of appreciation for its participation.

Second Harvest Food Drives

Sri Saibaba Mandir has worked with Second Harvest Heartland in conducting food drives. Many Minnesotans rely upon local food shelves to help feed their families. There has been an ever increasing demand in area food shelf visits.
