Community Projects

Our community projects are focused on addressing the underlying issues that contribute to the achievement gap in Minneapolis, one of the worst in the country. Specifically, our projects address food insecurity with Backpack Buddies, literacy with Between the Lines and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) education with HOMES (Hands-on Math, Engineering and Science.) Through our Helping Hands program, we support non-profit partners around the community in their efforts to promote literacy and nutrition within the populations they serve.
