National Volunteer Appreciation Week was celebrated last week, April 15-20, 2018, and although we celebrate our volunteers every day we would like to take this time to give extra thanks for their amazing hard work and vibrant personalities. Jeremiah Program would not be possible without the 12,125 hours our 1,087 volunteers have dedicated this past year, which according to Independent Sector is valued at $292,455.
Jeremiah Program offers several volunteer opportunities to contribute time, talent, and treasures to create a brighter future, which includes: Bullfrog Bash and Golf & Tennis Tournament events, Childcare, Cook for Kids, Hospitality, Life Skills Facilitators, Tutors, Career Development and Jeremiah Program Ambassadors. Each opportunity provides unique experiences and has a lasting impact on the families we partner with.
Cook for Kids in Minneapolis & St. Paul
Cook for Kids is a volunteer opportunity on our Minneapolis and St. Paul campuses that takes place every Tuesday and Thursday. Volunteers are welcome to help out in our kitchens and prepare meals for our families before evening Life Skills classes.
Jake, Solomon, Zane, Daniel, and David currently attend Concordia Academy high school in Roseville and have become regular Cook for Kids volunteers at Jeremiah Program. They spend their Thursday evenings in the kitchen of the Minneapolis campus stirring up tasty meals for our families.
Jake and his team started volunteering for Cook for Kids as a way to earn credit for school. They have been volunteering since the beginning of this year and are dedicated to supporting Jeremiah Program’s mission through their volunteer work. The five high school boys have very much enjoyed their volunteer experience at Jeremiah and are happy to give a helping hand to the families we partner with.
Jeremiah Program is incredibly grateful to have these boys volunteer for Cook for Kids, as well as each and every one of our many other volunteers. We cannot thank our volunteers enough for the dedication they display to support our mission and create a welcoming atmosphere at our campuses. Thank you!
