Volunteering at St. David's Center

You can help us build relationships that nurture the development of every child and family.

St. David's Center offers unique and rewarding volunteer opportunities in a variety of programs at our Minnetonka location and in the broader Twin Cities West metro community. We understand the importance of volunteers and the impact they have on each and every child, and we are committed to providing ongoing support, training and flexibility.

Volunteer Spotlight - UPS


UPS, Spring 2014 Featured VolunteersThe UPS Foundation has supported St. David's Center since 1996, and 2014 marks the company's fifth year of volunteer involvement with our organization. Employee volunteers kicked off their efforts in March this year helping to set up our new community-based autism day treatment site in Northeast Minneapolis. Graciously offering their personal vehicles to help, they moved therapy equipment and other classroom materials from a New Hope YMCA and our Minnetonka campus to the new location, which opened in April and is co-located within Children's Choice Center, a Somali-run daycare facility.

"Everyone who came out to volunteer really enjoyed it," said Rory Hokens, the Area Human Resources Manager for UPS's Northern Plains District. "We are excited to be part of this special opportunity in helping St. David's Center carry out such a unique partnership and serve an immigrant population with its need."UPS volunteers

UPS's volunteer connection to St. David's Center blossomed while Betsy Collins, now the company's Managing Director of Enterprise Sales - Retail & Consumer Goods, served on the St. David's Center Board of Directors from 2009-2012. Still volunteering herself, she has coordinated volunteers to help on projects from the 2010 toddler playground rebuild to the 2011 Make Them Shine Gala to this year's program site moves.

UPS has four hubs in the metro area employing more 3,500 people, which helps drive the company's volunteerism internally, and encourages all salaried employees to take time out of their work day to volunteer.
