ECHO Food Drive

During my freshman and senior years I helped with the ECHO Food Drive as a part of the honors learning communities. We labeled this event Trick or Treat So Others Can Eat. We went out to selected Mankato communities before Halloween and handed out flyers explaining what we were doing and then on Halloween we returned to those houses and picked up non-perishable goods for the ECHO Food Shelf. My senior year we collected 704 pounds of food!

Mahkato Wacipi Pow Wow

For my Anthropology Language and Culture course we had a service learning component where I volunteered with the Mahkato Wacipi Pow Wow. For more details on my experiences please see my field notes. In addition, this volunteerism was part of the Make a Difference Project for the Oh the Places You'll Go: Discovering Your Passions Learning Community. 

Blue Earth County Historical Society

For my Nonprofit Sector (Fall 2016) and Museology (Spring 2017) courses I completed a service learning component where I volunteered with the Blue Earth County Historical Society. I went to the Historical Society weekly and worked in the research area filing newspaper clippings, recording obituaries and wedding announcements from historical newspapers and doing other various tasks as needed. As part of this experience I have learned more about the nonprofit sector as well as museums in a place that I could potentially see myself working in someday. I hope to continue volunteering here in the future since there is more to the historical society than the research center and I want to gain as much experience as I can.
