MINNEAPOLIS (June 17, 2016) –Globe Education Network (GEN), a collaborative body of career colleges and universities, will host the ninth annual We Care Community Service Day on Friday, June 17. Hundreds of employees from Globe University and Minnesota School of Business, Minnesota School of Cosmetology, and the Institute of Production and Recording (IPR) will volunteer their time with more than a dozen organizations.
Employees from the corporate office and campuses in Minnesota, Wisconsin and South Dakota will spend the day helping a variety of organizations including the City of Bloomington Parks and Recreation Department, Feed My Starving Children, Minneapolis Veterans Home, Tubman Center in Maplewood, Chippewa Falls Boys and Girls Club, Transfiguration School and Church in Oakdale and Open Arms. Two employees working remotely from Florida will also be volunteering at their local food shelf, boxing and delivering food!
“We feel privileged to serve our students every day in a manner that allows them to apply what they are learning not only to their chosen profession but to their daily lives. Community service is not simply about the one day a year we take time to come together and serve a need in our local communities, it’s about creating a foundation for our students and staff to engage civically, serve others and learn to become an involved member of where they live and work. We are truly honored to celebrate this day by the various needs of our local communities,” said Jeanne Herrmann, Chief Operating Officer at Globe University & Minnesota School of Business.
In 2015, GEN employees invested more the 1,700 volunteer hours on this one day alone.
In addition to its annual community service day, GEN is dedicated to the community year-round. Through its We Care mission, the colleges integrate career-focused education with applied learning to expose students to real-world working environments by partnering with organizations including Make-A-Wish Foundation, Youth Frontiers, National Kidney Foundation, Animal Humane Society, United Way, American Cancer Society, Big Brother Big Sisters, Ronald McDonald House and many more.
