Xcel Day of Service at Avenues

Volunteers at Brooklyn Avenues, our 12-bed program in Brooklyn Park.

This month Xcel Energy volunteers spent time at our two shelter and transitional living programs, Minneapolis Avenues and Brooklyn Avenues. Volunteers spent an afternoon learning about youth homelessness and helping staff with yard work. They pulled weeds, mowed and raked, and prepped our community gardens for next year. Thanks to the volunteers, our yards are looking great and the houses feel more like home!

Their time at Avenues was part of Xcel Energy’s state-wide Day of Service. Across the state Xcel Energy employees gave back to their communities through volunteering. Xcel Energy volunteered at Avenues during their 2020 Day of Service too.

From all of us at Avenues, thank you Xcel Energy for volunteering your time at Avenues!
