The best way to truly understand the needs within a community is through volunteering. While a story can instill empathy, action is often the best way to make a lasting impact. We can read about someone’s circumstances and empathize with it, or we can get involved directly and come to understand how dynamic the world truly is. But with so much need, it can be daunting to know where to start. That’s where HandsOn Twin Cities comes in.
HandsOn Twin Cities inspires, equips, and mobilizes people to provide hands-on impact to solve the most pressing challenges in our communities. The century-old organization connects nonprofits, volunteers, and companies, giving individuals opportunities to make a difference where help is needed.
HandsOn Twin Cities mobilizes volunteers through outreach and events year-round, including a regular Volunteer Expo at Mall of America®. Our guests can interact with booths representing immediate volunteer opportunities or even participate in “speed volunteer opportunities” on the spot—creating tie blankets, hygiene kits, and more for local nonprofit efforts.
The Mall partners with HandsOn Twin Cities internally as well, providing volunteer projects and opportunities for our team to participate in right on site if they would like to do so.
We’re strong believers in learning through action and experience, and HandsOn Twin Cities specializes in bringing those interactive opportunities to life.
