Community Service means that we want to make a difference on our campuses and in our communities.  We know that giving back to others unselfishly makes the world a better place and makes us better people.   Serving and giving helps to connect us.

Minnesota Alums have, for the last several years, chosen to sponsor a family through the Family Friends Holiday Program.  This program is run as a joint project between Catholic Charities and Lutheran Social Services and builds on its success from year to year due to the generosity of the people in Minnesota.  In Dec 2007, MACO sponsored a single father who is raising 2 teenage daughters!

Our newest philanthropy is the Jeremiah Program which assists low-income mothers and their children to help themselves complete their education and achieve economic self-sufficiency through empowerment skills, access to affordable housing, child development services, health care, support services and meaningful employment.  The Jeremiah Program mothers and children develop positive self-esteem and clarify their values on which to build a successful life.  MACO volunteers at "Cooks for Kids" and sponsors a school supply drive at the end of the summer.

We'd love for you to join us!
