Since Hope Village opened in April, the Minot community has consistently showed its support.
The local community has been generous as Hope Village coordinates out-of-town volunteer teams, baking cookies, serving meals, answering phones and dropping off donations.
Olson, who’s with Boy Scout Troop 416 – Minot, planned the project a few months ago, when he’d asked the then-village manager, Joe Galey, if there was some kind of project he could do. Galey suggested a message board and Olson got to researching.
The blue message board has a cork board on one side and a dry erase board on the other. It’s freestanding so it can be stored during the winter and has a shingled roof. It’s now sitting outside the food tent, welcoming new volunteer teams
Another community group spent some time in the food tent (and the kitchen) this week when a five-man team from Baker Hughes came in to lend a hand. Ann, our morning cook, armed the quintet with cleaning supplies and they took it from there, making the kitchen floor sparkle and tidying the food tent and storage closet.
Community teams are welcome to volunteer, whether it’s on the serving line, on a construction site or in another capacity.
Right now, we have an ongoing need to schedule breakfast and dinner servers. The morning shift is from 6:30 to 8:30 a.m. or so and the evening shift runs about 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. If you are interested, email email@example.com.
