The Minnesota School of Business in Moorhead thanked volunteers while helping support many valued community partners in the area.
FirstLink and Fargo-Moorhead RedHawks teamed up for a ‘Community Volunteer Appreciation Night’ at Newman Outdoor Field. The campus sponsored an ice cream social with Robert Gibb & Sons Inc. from 6:00 to 7:00 p.m. before the FM RedHawks/Wichita Wingnuts game in the RedHawks’ picnic area. Attendees had the chance to learn about volunteering opportunities in the community and meet other volunteers. Four representatives from Minnesota School of Business were also in attendance to hand out ice cream sandwiches.
15 nonprofit agencies had tables set-up with information in an effort to educate the public on the benefits and importance of volunteering. Over 250 people were in attendance.
“We very much appreciate
Minnesota School of Business sponsorship in helping FirstLink expand this event and recognize over 350 community volunteers,” said FirstLink Volunteer Center Director Sheila Borgerding. “Compared to last year, we recognized 5 times as many volunteers.”
Service-learning Coordinator Kristi Leverson, Dean of Faculty Melinda Rustad, Librarian Krista Jacobson, and Communications Specialist Brian Shawn were there to hand out ice cream to attendees.
“We are certainly glad to promote volunteering in the community because it’s something we believe in so strongly at MSB,” said service-learning coordinator Kristi Leverson.
