All Hands Volunteers, Project Minot

Gutting With the Governor

Not only did we have 23 people out in the field today – a new record for Project Minot – but one of them was none other than the Governor of North Dakota, Jack Dalrymple. He is spearheading a campaign to give state employees one day of paid leave to volunteer in the Minot area with flood relief programs. Today’s group obviously enjoyed themselves as they penciled in another group of seven for tomorrow. At this rate we will at least start making some headway with the ever-increasing work requests.

In other news the Project Minot inbox is now open so if you have any questions about the project or you’d like to volunteer drop me a line at projectminot@hands.org. Hopefully tomorrow it will be brimming with requests as I posted it in messages on college Facebook pages throughout North and South Dakota. Fingers crossed!
