Our goal is to raise $20,000 towards project supplies and donations to give back to locals in need. Onsite volunteers will build customized Job Readiness Packs and create No Sew Fleece Tied Blankets.
Please join our annual NetVU Day of Caring volunteer project, designed to give back to the community hosting Accelerate, powered by NetVU. Working with HandsOn Twin Cities and the Big Chill NetVU Chapter, we’ll be doing what insurance folks do best – helping others!
Stay for the entire time or drop by as your schedule allows. If you arrive after the project kicks off at 8:30 a.m., we’ll get you up to speed. Participate as you can!
