    Amanda's Bio:
    I grew up in the Twin Cities, but now live up in Ely, MN near the BWCA, where my family has been for the last 7 years. I have three brothers, who I adore, and I enjoy fishing, playing basketball, and rough housing with them whenever I can. My mom has been a daycare provider since I was born, which served as inspiration for me to pursue a degree in Elementary education. I also love to paint, draw, and DANCE! I have been dancing for twenty years and am a dance instructor in Superior, WI....I can't imagine a life without it!

Community Day. MORE Than Just a Day Off From School

I know, I know.  All of you are reading that headline and groaning.  Relax…I’m not going to give you a heartfelt lecture on Community Day as I’m sure many others already have.  However, I am going to tell you that Community Day is a great way to give back to the community without having to make a weekly or monthly commitment.  It is one day (sometimes only for a few hours), and it’s amazing how that one day of your time can dramatically help the places you volunteer.  With a helping hand from you, these organizations are able to:

  • Have cleaner environments in which to provide services
  • Increase the production of food products that can be used to feed thousands of poor and homeless individuals and families
  • Save time sorting and organizing charitable donations that those in need desperately seek everyday
  • Provide better support and care for those who seek their services
  • Continue to thrive and be valuable resources within our community

If you haven’t done so already, I encourage you to at least take a look at the list of volunteer opportunities that has been compiled.  The link is http://www2.css.edu/app/community/index.cfm

If you do not feel compelled to volunteer at the locations provided by Scholastica, go out there and find another way that you can give back to the community, instead.  Donate to a local food shelf, play catch with some youngsters on the playground, anything.  Every little bit helps.
