Sophomores Gabe Ramirez, Mimi Longe, Jane Christakos, Isle Graupman, and Sara Brown put together a delicious plate of pretzels, candy corn, oranges, and gogurts for kids at The Crisis Nursery located in Minneapolis. 

The Nursery has been helping families in crisis since 1983, and offers free services for parents and children. It is a resource for families and parents who face unemployment, homelessness, medial or mental health concerns, poverty, domestic violence, or other difficult situations. The Nursery helps strengthen families by connecting them to resources, according to their website, caring for children during difficult times and helping make relationships between children and parents stronger.  The mission of the Nursery is to end child abuse and neglect and create strong and healthy families.

“Our club thought it would be a good opportunity to get involved and help give back to the community,” sophomore Jane Christakos said.

Seeing all the little kids was really cute and giving them snacks put a smile on their face”

— Gabe Ramirez

Christakos and the other sophomores who volunteered this month are part of the club Students Against Destructive Decisions.

“Seeing all the little kids was really cute and giving them snacks put a smile on their face,” sophomore Gabe Ramirez said. Ramirez also talked about how he definitely wants to volunteer again at the nursery because all the kids were so cute.

His advice to future volunteers is that although the kids may be loud and rambunctious, they are also very nice and sweet.
