Minneapolis Team Partners With FamilyWise For Annual Day Of Service
Daugherty — Minneapolis held their annual Spring Day of Service on Saturday, May 6, 2017. Volunteers spent the day helping FamilyWise, the primary partner for the Minneapolis branch community committee, with a variety of projects inside and outside of their office building. Some of the tasks included cleaning up the grounds, addressing thank you cards, cleaning and organizing toys, painting rooms, hanging white boards, re-wiring AV equipment, and gardening.
This isn’t the first time Team Daugherty has partnered with FamilyWise. Last year they came together to put together a free library for families to use. The books and games were placed in the FamilyWise classrooms and family rooms, and also kept on-hand to celebrate milestones such as program graduation, family reunification and securing housing. Team Daugherty also organizes annual gift drives during the holiday season to help benefit the families involved with FamilyWise.
When Minneapolis was looking for a local nonprofit that helps families in poverty (78% of the FamilyWise clients live in poverty) to partner with, they were happy to discover the FamilyWise organization. Team Daugherty has enjoyed all of the events and community drives we have been able to help organize with this fantastic organization. In fact, in September of 2015, we were thrilled to be co-recipients of Charities Review Council‘s first Better Together Award!
