Power of 100: Serving Humanity
Volunteer, mentor, serve and shape lives. That is exactly what dozens of groups accomplished through the Power of 100, MSU Centennial Service Challenge. These groups helped Minot State University surpass its goal of 100 service projects, with a grand total 107!
While the goal was met, it is never too late for everyone to continue to do good things and serve humanity; create a better environment; and share knowledge and deliver results.
Some examples of the good deeds accomplished through Power of 100 projects include: Department of Accounting and Finance faculty and volunteers, for the ‘Feed My Starving Children Mobile-Pack Event’ (www.minotstateu.edu/100) packaged 419,904 meals, enough to feed 1,633 children for a year. Two-thirds of the meals packed will be shipped directly to children in the Philippines. Ackerman-Estvold employees successfully provided more than 100 children with one book per month from birth to the age of 5, that is 60 books. The effort is through the Dolly Parton Imagination Library, a national program facilitated locally by the Souris Valley United Way. Numerous Power of 100 projects assisted or honored military personnel and veterans, from groups sending care packages, to donating gently used cell phones, to providing hot meals.
"Serving humanity" can include any good deed, the sky is the limit. Hundreds of individuals have served in honor of MSU’s Centennial Celebration. We have a plan and we need everyone - their ideas, passion and commitment to continue these good deeds.
