2017 Miss Inver Grove Heights Princess Megan Rauschnot Service Project

thumbnail_image1My first community service project as a member of the Inver Grove Heights Royalty Program involved me organizing and running a winter clothing drive. I organized this event in order to support our local Salvation Army which is an organization that helps communities have access to items that are inaccessible to many people. In order to find donations I created a flyer and asked for donations from neighbors, family members, coworkers and classmates. The items were then brought to my house and put into a designated bin or I went and picked them up. The items that I collected through this process included MN Winter necessities such as hats, jackets, pants and sweaters. I then called the Salvation Army location in West St Paul and had the items picked up and delivered to their facility located on 7th Street. The Salvation Army worker was very thankful, and I’m glad to have been able to help their organization as well as members of our surrounding communities before the cold winter months arrive.
