1,400+ "Likes" for MUMC's Youth Service Project
Minnehaha UMC youth’s “15,000 Good Deeds” service project is getting national attention. On February 25, the United Methodist Church shared the story of our youth’s good deeds on their Facebook page. Since then it’s generated more than 1,400 “Likes” and a lot of interest. (This is after a video about the project made it on Ellen DeGeneres’ ellentube.) Here’s the link to see it for yourself. And be sure to “Like” it on Facebook!

They helped serve Enchiladas with Rick Anderson to raise money for MinneHarvest.
They took a trip to Feed My Starving Children and packed enough food to feed 37 children for a whole year.
They spent an evening making and packaging sandwiches for the homeless.
