Kids In Need Minnesota


24 Hours To Empower was a tremendous success!  Over 300 volunteers packed 7,309 backpacks with essential school supplies for students who would otherwise go without, and we want to thank our incredible community partners for their support:

Presenting Sponsor:  PNC Bank

2-Hour Power Sponsors:  Land O’Lakes, Bimbo Bakeries USA, PMG Services, ECOLAB, Anagram International, Wings Financial Credit Union, and Deloitte.


In 2019, we are coming together with our community of partners, supporters, family, and friends to ensure all students have access to quality school supplies to learn and succeed in the classroom. This special event is dedicated to supporting students across the state through preparing and packing essential learning materials that will be distributed to Minnesota schools most in need.

In 2018, Kids In Need Minnesota helped nearly 100,000 students and over 4,000 teachers throughout the state.

In the heart of back-to-school season, we will be celebrating our dedication to local educators and students by preparing school supplies for distribution to students throughout Minnesota.  Serving with the community in a high-energy atmosphere, volunteers and supporters from across the Twin Cities will engage in a 24-hour pack-a-thon to fulfill the school supply needs for thousands of Minnesota students. The event will consist of twelve 2-hour volunteer events, include snacks and beverages, and an opportunity for volunteers to win prizes.
