Good Afternoon Donor Connect Network-
It has been quite some time since a new list has gone out and I truly apologize for that! I have attached a new list I generated yesterday and I will likely have another updated list next week.
Please let me know if you see anything of interest and I will get you the contact information.
As Minnesota’s front door for generosity, we are always excited to see all of the support on GiveMN.org from Minnesotans to power the good being done by nonprofits and schools in every corner of our state.
As we look forward to Memorial Day next weekend, we are especially thrilled to highlight a major project and fundraiser taking place in the Twin Cities. Flags for Fort Snelling, KARE 11, Mall of America, and RBCU have teamed up to ensure a flag will be placed on every grave at Fort Snelling National Cemetery, a feat which hasn’t been accomplished in more than 30 years.
Today, KARE 11 will host a special Flags for Fort Snelling Giving Day. It will be a day spent sharing stories of local veterans and our local heroes. Your support will ensure every Veteran is honored, both this year and for years to come.
Here’s how you can help:
Help us purchase flags for each headstone for our partner nonprofit Flags for Fort Snelling. Your donation, large or small, will ensure every hero that has been laid to rest at Fort Snelling National Cemetery will be remembered this Memorial Day and lay the groundwork to make this a yearly tradition.
Volunteer to help place flags over Memorial Day weekend and provide photos to requesting families who are unable to visit in person for Memorial Day. Volunteer registration is available on the Flags for Fort Snelling website.
We only have 11 more days until Memorial Day weekend and we need your support to make this Memorial Day, and those to come, special for every Veteran.
Twin Cities PBS – TPT and Minnesota Remembers Vietnam are hosting The Wall That Heals Thursday, June 21 through Sunday, June 24 on the grounds of the State Capitol in St. Paul, MN. This brand-new version of the Wall is a traveling, 3/4–scaled replica of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, D.C. Since its original dedication in 1996, The Wall has been displayed in nearly 600 communities throughout the nation. The Wall is free and open to the public and will be open 24 hours a day, beginning at 9 a.m. on Thursday, June 21 and ending in the mid-afternoon on Sunday, June 24. In addition to the Wall itself, there will be programming throughout the weekend. (For a list of our scheduled events, visit MNVietnam.org/wall)
We wanted to offer you the chance to be a part of this amazing event! As a volunteer you will have the opportunity to experience The Wall while giving back and serving the community. Duties may include but are not limited to: greeting and welcoming guests, assisting visitors in locating names on the Wall, helping complete rubbings of engraved names, giving directions, answering questions, and providing informational material to visitors. We are looking for individual and groups. In order to qualify as a group, you must be able to register a minimum of 6 people, at least 15 years in age, for at least one of the same shift.
Shifts are available in 4-hour blocks. Your group is welcome sign up for multiple blocks. T-shirts will be provided for you, as well as a private volunteer area with water, snacks, and a dedicated space to reflect. There is not a designated volunteer parking lot, but there are several lots and parking areas nearby. The Capitol grounds are also easily accessible by Metro Transit.
Training will take place on Wednesday, June 20 beginning at 5:30 p.m. and will last approximately 2 hours. Please make every reasonable effort to attend as it will not only make your volunteering experience much more enjoyable, but there are also forms and waivers that MUST be filled out prior to your volunteering.
If you have mobility/accessibility concerns (or any other questions) about volunteering, please contact Samantha Grangaard, Volunteer Coordinator, at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please let Samantha know if you have any questions about this opportunity.
We are looking forward to this event and hope to see you there!
