Over 350 Community Members Attended
Long lines provide an opportunity for neighbors to visit with new friends. The parking lot was filled with children playing basketball, bouncing in the Bounce House, jumping and running around. Music was provided by our own DJ Jeff Johnson. Volunteers gave away books collected by Target Knollwood and Minnetonka to all attendees. Fresh produce was available thanks to Cub Foods and Second Harvest Heartland.
Rev. Willie McAffee (right front) and members of NuWay Missionary Baptist Church treated the community to their famous BBQ ribs and chicken at the Annual Block Party.
Volunteers continue to be the heart of The Camden Promise. Over 35 volunteers were involved with the set up, welcoming, grilling, serving and clean up of our Annual Block Party. TCP program clients continue to volunteer, a way for them to give back to their community. The majority of volunteers continue to come from within the three partner congregations. We welcome new volunteers all the time. Visit www.thecamdenpromise.org for a complete list of our volunteer opportunities.
U Of Mn Food Study
University of MN students signed up community members for interviews about food purchasing habits. Participants were given $240 Cub Foods gift cards. This is just another example of how our community is helping to improve the lives of their neighbors.
