Review for Aeon, Minneapolis, MN, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I started volunteering with Aeon when my company participated in a clean-up day around their properties. It was nice to connect with my coworkers in a setting outside of work and get some fresh air while helping others. Then, I helped serve meals at Aeon apartment complexes. I love the Share-A-Meal program because the volunteers and tenants have fun while doing it, and I pick up some cooking tips along the way! I also attended several fundraising events put on by Connect, a young professionals group in alignment with Aeon’s mission. The Connect members get creative in finding ways to support the organization. Finally, I volunteered to teach computer skills at one of the apartments monthly. I realized that it doesn’t seem like much to share a couple hours of my time and some computer know-how that I might take for granted, but it can mean a lot to the residents. In all of these experiences with Aeon, the staff has been incredibly dedicated and resourceful, the residents are thoughtful and appreciative, and I’m proud to be a part of it.
