This coming Friday, you can help the youth of America while dining on pasta. As I understand it, many of our inner city kids are raising money for a trip to Wolf Ridge Environmental Learning Center, which should be one heck of a great learning and relationship building experience for these kids.
You can help them meet their financial goals by eating pasta! Here are the deets on the Spaghetti Dinner:
Longfellow United for Youth and Families (LUYF) and Sanford Middle School’s Job Corps invite you to attend the 3rd Annual Spaghetti Dinner on January 30, 2009. Join us from 6-7:30pm at this come and go event to learn about two great programs that changing young lives across the greater Longfellow Community. Held at St Albert’s Church (2836 33rd Ave S Minneapolis) we appreciate your $5 donation for all you can eat Spaghetti from Chef Greg Peterson.

The Sanford Job Corps offers youth entrepreneurship, financial literacy, and job skills training for students at Sanford Middle School. Students also help local residents by shoveling snow, raking leaves, mowing yards, and much more while earning money to pay for school-related fees (including field trips, athletic fees, and much more).

By the way, I’ve tapped into this resource for lawn raking this past fall. They were great kids who did an excellent job. If you can, put them to work around your house.
