In a year of uncertainty, change, isolation, and challenge, HandsOn Twin Cities recognizes the thousands of people who have stepped forward to make a difference here in our community. Whether you volunteer virtually, safely volunteer in-person, donate, or simply check on your neighbors, friends, and family – you are appreciated!

Throughout this year, HandsOn has remained steadfast in our commitment to be agile and innovate to meet the needs of the community as they arise.

In March 2020, we created the COVID-19 Volunteer Response Hub to respond to the evolving needs of our 550 nonprofit partners. Since its creation, this Hub continues to house more than 175 needs and ways that people can volunteer from their homes virtually and go out  to safely volunteer where needed.

HandsOn staff mobilized to provide free one-on-one consultations and a variety of resources and tools with nonprofits about how to adapt their volunteer programming to meet the changing environment.

In response to the murder of George Floyd and the civil unrest that followed, HandsOn helped bring together a group now known as the Twin Cities Community Rebuilding Coalition. The goal of this group is to build better than before, in a way that recognizes Minnesota’s long history of racial injustice in property ownership, lending, and individual opportunity. Through this coalition we ensure that we are working closely with organizations that are deeply rooted in our community and that we are listening to the lived experiences of those most impacted.

Local corporations seeking to address social justice issues have joined with HandsOn to provide pro bono consulting services for Black, Indigenous, and People-of-Color owned/led small businesses and nonprofits in the Twin Cities to help with their rebuilding efforts. The anticipated pro bono value facilitated by HandsOn in 2020 equals 2,983 hours and a value of $581,685!

In 2019 we celebrated our 100-year anniversary with so many of you! It was a joyous occasion and allowed us to be reflective of our history. In our 101st year, we look forward – there is much to be done and we can’t do it without you.
