Volunteer MPS

COVID-19 update as of 4.21.2020:

Volunteers

All individual volunteer activities are on hold during Distance Learning. In the interest of student safety, volunteers cannot participate in lessons or have direct contact with students via email, phone, video, or any other means.  Please contact volunteer.services@mpls.k12.mn.us with any questions.

The outpouring of support from the community has been overwhelming. It is truly heartwarming to see neighbor helping neighbor during this challenging time.  Here are ways you can help:

  • The Sheridan Story needs help packing food for our community.
  • Minnesota Responds is a partnership that integrates and engages local, regional, and statewide volunteer programs to strengthen public health and health care, reduce vulnerability, build resilience, and improve preparedness, response and recovery capabilities.

MPS Employees

Meal Distribution Sites

At this time MPS is not in need of community help with meal distribution or enrichment materials distribution – we are utilizing our trained MPS Culinary & Wellness staff to distribute meals and the on-site bus drivers to distribute enrichment materials.  We remain very cognizant of the number of individuals at pick up sites and must limit the number to essential staff only. 

Donations of Supplies

MPS is not able to collect, store, sort, and distribute donated items from individuals at this time.  If you find other organizations that are accepting donations, please do give.
