On October 3rd, we partnered with 50 volunteers from Honeywell and Robbinsdale Cooper High School to renovate and make improvements to the Greater Minneapolis Crisis Nursery. Volunteers spent the day painting interior hallways and rooms, landscaping the grounds, building a deck and refurbishing some recreational equipment for children.
The Greater Minneapolis Crisis Nursery provides temporary shelter for thousands of children annually and provides crisis counseling and support programs for parents. Executive Director Mary Pat Lee said, “Our mission at the crisis nursery is to create a safe and secure environment for the well-being of the children we serve. These improvements will help bring smiles to the faces of many children and families struggling to overcome challenges. We are so thankful to all of the volunteers from Honeywell and Cooper High School, along with Rebuilding Together Twin Cities, who came here today to give us a helping hand.”
This project marks the 28th collaboration between Rebuilding Together Twin Cities and Honeywell to help homeowners and communities in need throughout the Twin Cities. It is also one of many that have been completed in an ongoing partnership between Honeywell Hometown Solutions and Cooper High School’s Cooper Cares program.
Thanks to everyone from Honeywell and Robbinsdale Cooper High School who came together to make to make this project possible!
