Why do you choose to volunteer for the City of St. Louis Park?
When we moved here from out of state we chose to live in St. Louis Park because of its strong sense of community. I like to help people and I love living in the Park. Volunteering is my opportunity to not only give back to my community, but to help keep St. Louis Park the strong, vibrant city it is. Volunteering gives me the opportunity to meet new friends and to set an example for my kids.
