Tech High School Graduate Spends Summer Volunteering [VIDEO]

ST. CLOUD — One way to cure your kid’s summertime boredom is to encourage them to do volunteer work throughout the community. That’s exactly what recent Tech High School graduate Tiana Neu is doing with her free time.

Neu has been volunteering with the Salvation Army in St. Cloud for three summers. She says giving back to the community is one of the best ways to spend the summer.

Neu helps out a few days each week by making food, setting up dessert tables, unloading trucks and busing tables. It’s part of the Salvation Army’s Weekday Lunch program.

Neu heard about the food shelf while she volunteered as a bell ringer during the holiday Red Kettle Campaign.

The Salvation Army is encouraging kids to get involved this summer by doing projects at home. They suggest letting your child make a shopping list of items to donate to your local food shelf or plant a garden of fruits and vegetables that can be donated to your local meal programs.

The non-profit also recommends going through your child’s winter clothing and donating items that they’ve outgrown.
