Please join your fellow Rotary Club of Edina Rotarians and attend the Rotary Club of Edina vocational event scheduled for Thursday, May 26. Club members will meet in the ECC parking lot and take a coach bus to the Minneapolis Women's Club. Registration is required to attend. Bus seats are limited to 56 and available on a first come/first serve basis. The club will confirm bus seat availability and provide directions to the facility once registration has closed. Registration closes midnight, Tuesday, March 24.  Register HERE.

We will be touring the Involve MN facility at the Women’s Club to see where they prepare meals and distribute the clothes that we collected for them last fall. Along with the tour, Lt. Snyder is a fabulous cook and he will be preparing a wonderful lunch for us.  Register HERE.

Involve MN is a Minnesota based non-profit where community, business and government partner to help those struggling with being unsheltered on our Minneapolis and St. Paul area streets. Minneapolis police officer Lt. Grant Snyder and his wife Melanie founded Involve MN on the premise that they could do more as a community to help those among us who struggle in homelessness and poverty.

Snyder has worked with not only the homeless, but also the anti human traffic initiative. Drawing from partnerships in law enforcement, social services, business, and government, they work daily to improve the dignity and address the deep need of those that are struggling on our streets. Their belief that this is best done through relationships and at the core of their mission is a deep and abiding desire to meet people where they are and engage them with support, friendship, and mentoring.
