Holiday Fair is a charitable, non-profit, intergenerational event sponsored by Westwood Lutheran Church, St. Louis Park, MN. The time and talents of members and friends are utilized in the raising of funds to support Westwood’s mission goals of outreach within the community as well as worldwide. Holiday Fair will give granting priority to those non-profit organizations in which Westwood members/friends are significantly involved as volunteers or supporters.
All funds raised are given in grants to organizations that help improve the lives of others. Grant applications can be downloaded below and are also available in the church office. Please read the guidelines and turn in your grant application to the main office. Deadline TBD.
