The Online staff created butterflies shaped out of grapes, strawberries, string cheese and carrots.

On January 15th, four staffers from the Minnesota School of Business-Online campus visited the Greater Minneapolis Crisis Nursery located in the heart of Minneapolis, Minn. The crisis nursery works to end child neglect and abuse by providing free services for families in need or crisis. Some of the free services they offer are:

  • 24-hour Crisis Helpline
  • Crisis Counseling
  • Overnight Residential Child Care
  • 4th Day Home Visiting Program
  • Pediatric Assessment & Medical Management
  • Parent Education and Parent Support Group
  • Community Roundtable

The online staffers volunteered to prepare and eat a mid-morning snack with the kids currently staying at the crisis nursery. The girls put together the creative snack of a butterfly shaped fruit and cheese plate (pictured above) and the kids absolutely loved them!

After the volunteer shift was over, graduate degree program admissions representative, Celina Serrano had this to say, “Seeing the kids at the crisis nursery really put things into perspective. Knowing that I was able to take their minds off what’s happening at home and just spend some quality time together means a lot to me, and hopefully the kids too.”
