Action Day 2023
August 3 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm
Volunteer at Action Day on Thursday, August 3!
Co-hosted by the Minnesota Twins and St. Paul Saints, we are thrilled to welcome volunteers to pack backpacks full of school supplies at Target Field. This year’s Action Day event will provide a robust 90-minute to two-hour volunteer experience where you will work in a group of up to 20 to pack 400 backpacks. Your volunteer experience will include:
- Unpacking boxes of school supplies and setting up your station
- Packing backpacks
- Boxing completed backpacks
- Cleaning up your station
This year’s volunteer project is suitable for ages 12+ and is accessible for all abilities. Each station can accommodate groups up to 20 people. Group sizes less than 20 (individuals, pairs, etc.) are also welcome and can sign up for any station with open spaces.
If the volunteer station you are interested in is full, you can join our Rally Volunteer roster! As a Rally Volunteer, you’ll jump into action and help pack backpacks at stations where volunteers are needed. To register, select a shift time and the “Rally Volunteer” option. When you arrive at Action Day, our captains will place you at a station in need of additional volunteers. *We cannot guarantee groups of 3 or more who sign up to be a Rally Volunteer will be placed at the same station.
Volunteer shift times (you will be prompted to select a time on your registration):
- 9:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m.
- 10:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.
- 1:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m.
- 2:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m.
If your shift time is no longer available, we welcome you to join our waitlist. Individuals on our waitlist will be contacted on a first-come, first-served basis as volunteer spots become available.
If you need to cancel your registration or need assistance, please contact Mary Walker.
