“Find Your Way” Speed Volunteer Event

Looking to build up some good karma?  The United Way is making it easy to help out in a really convenient way. On August 18, join a flash volunteer group in downtown Minneapolis or Saint Paul.  You can volunteer for 15 mins, 30 mins, 45 mins or an hour.

Here’s a sampling of the volunteer projects:

  • Healthy Snack Packs: Create healthy snacks and provide essential nourishment to hungry children in our community. In our state, 39 percent of food shelf recipients are children.
  • Dental Supply Packs: Assemble dental supply kits and provide bright smiles for children and pregnant mothers. Tooth decay is a leading cause of school absenteeism.
  • Laundry soap: Bring dignity to low-income families by providing them with laundry soap so they can wash their clothes. Government food support programs do not allow recipients to purchase laundry soap and personal hygiene products with the funds.
  • Education Kits: Help families experience the joy of learning together with early education kits made just for them. Only 51 percent of Minnesota kindergarteners are fully prepared for kindergarten in the areas of language and literacy.
  • Blankets: Make a blanket to help comfort a child. 60 minutes = 1 blanket and warmth and comfort to a child in crisis.
