Valley's Noble Vision began in 2012 with the KidPack program, handing out bags of food on Fridays to kids who might not have enough food on the weekend. We fell in love with the school and wanted to expand our involvement, so we offered classroom help the next year and called the work Noble Vision.
We join with Valley of Peace Lutheran church and Unity Church Minneapolis to hand out almost 200 bags of food each week during the school year. We also hand out bags during the 4-week summer school program.
In the classroom, Valley volunteers work with students to master reading and math. Some of the children who transfer to the school are just beginning and we are joyful to help them catch up with their classmates.
