Collaborate with Beacon’s Nicollet Square to provide a supportive environment for youth who have experienced homelessness. | 2.9.17 @BelieveInHope #KingfieldEmptyBowls #NicolletSquare #BeaconInterfaith
Reading Partners is working to help close the achievement gap through one-on-one literacy intervention with local elementary school students. The Twin Cities has one of the worst achievement gaps in the country, and this is a way to engage with your community to work for social justice and a better future for all. Make a lifelong impact on a struggling reader with only one hour per week!
Reading Partners has 11 different school sites in Minneapolis-St. Paul and is looking for volunteer tutors to serve 450 students. Two schools in South Minneapolis are particularly close to Kingfield, but if you work elsewhere or are otherwise interested in another area, Reading Partners’ also has locations in North and NE Minneapolis and St. Paul. No experience necessary; training is provided.
Be part of the team at Kingfield Empty Bowls; sign up to volunteer!
On Thursday, February 9th, Kingfield will host the sixth annual Kingfield Empty Bowls! Empty Bowls is a single day event that combines art, food, local businesses, nonprofits, and lots and lots of neighbors raising awareness and funds to combat hunger in our neighborhood. Your support of this project will again benefit Nicollet Square, an organization that provides affordable housing and a supportive environment for young adults who have experienced homelessness or have been in the foster care system. Last year we were able to donate over $10,000 to Nicollet Square through this single evening event!
The concept of Kingfield Empty Bowls is simple: Attendees donate (suggested at $20 per bowl), select a beautiful handmade bowl donated by a local pottery artist, enjoy a hearty meal of soup prepared by volunteers, and then keep their bowl as a reminder that many of our neighbors need food and housing.
