Volunteers needed for St. Scholastica Community Day

The College of St. Scholastica needs more volunteers for its Community Day on Wednesday.

The multipronged effort involves students delivering free Thanksgiving-in-the-spring meals to those locally in need, preparing food packs for the international Feed My Starving Children organization, which will give to famine-stricken countries, and lobbying at the Capitol in support of the Minnesota State Grant program.

And you can help, too, even if you aren’t a St. Scholastica student.

The public is welcome to help pack food for the international effort in the campus Storm’s Den from noon until 7 p.m. Five hundred volunteers are needed and some slots are unfilled. Call Jay Newcomb at (218) 723-6552 to sign up for remaining slots.
