Next Thursday, I will be volunteering at the Xcel Energy Center, when United Way teams up with the Minnesota Wild to host Action Day 2019. I have the joy of being one of 4,000 volunteers working to back 40,000 backpacks that will be distributed to students through nonprofits and school districts across the metro area.
Each year, more than 100,000 students in our community go back to school without a backpack and the essential supplies needed to learn and succeed in the classroom.
Since 2016, United Way has been teaming up with all seven of Minnesota’s pro sports teams to bring volunteers together at Action Day to help local students start the school year ready to learn by filling backpacks with school supplies.
A $28 donation to the buys one backpack! I would love your support in raising money so that these children will have the supplies needed to start the school year off strong!
