Volunteer At Our Signature Events!

We rely on hundreds of volunteers throughout the year to help us carry out our mission to EMPOWER youth, IMPROVE lives, and UNITE communities. It is with your help that we are able to provide youth development needs of the increasingly diverse Twin Cities metro area.

                          Gala For Goals

Join us for our 11th Annual Gala For Goals this February 2021, which is our signature event of the year. In 2020 we had our largest event to date with over 1,400 guests in attendance, and over 90 total volunteers!

We were able to raise over $650,000 that is going to directly support our programs.

This is a great event for groups such as: High school team sports/clubs, churches, and college fraternities/clubs.

Join us next year and be a part of history!

Sanneh Foundation Toys For Tots Drive

Not every family has the opportunity to purchase presents for their loved ones each year. Fortunately, through our Toys For Tots Drive we were able to make that happen. With the help of our volunteers last year we were able to support 100 youth with toys, distribute 150 individual snacks, and 90 meal kits were given to families!

We are in need of help! This is a great first time volunteer event. With your help, a family can enjoy presents and a meal during the holidays.
