Community Service Project
Tuesday, May 31
1400-1600 – Local Veterans Home
This year's Community Service project will be hosted at a local Veterans home in Minneapolis. Our objective is to serve the warfighter and show our appreciation by serving those who have protected our freedom. On Tuesday, May 31st from 2-4 PM, we will have the opportunity to say thanks by hosting a bingo game followed by an ice cream social at a local Minneapolis Veterans home. Volunteers will help veterans watch/play their cards, hand out prizes to the winners and call bingo. Afterwards, volunteers will help scoop ice cream. This is a wonderful opportunity for volunteers to have direct impact on a vet's life as well as to interact/socialize during the ice cream social. To sign Up for this activity, please indicate yes on your registration form. You will be contacted two weeks before the PDI with more details.
