Newcomer members take great pride in our communities and are committed to do what they can to give back and help those in need. They are individually active in volunteering for and supporting charities and community organizations. In addition, there are group activities in which members bring items, have fundraisers, or collectively work for some of those organizations such as those indicated below.
Meals on Wheels: This group in Eden Prairie leads the effort to make sure people in our community receive the nutritious meals and the human connection they need to help them live independent lives.
People Reaching Out to People (PROP): This group is based in Eden Prairie and provides help to families in need. PROP operates a resale shop and food shelf. Many members volunteer at PROP and PROP SHOP on a weekly basis.
