2018 Rise & Shine Benefit Breakfast

At the 2018 Rise & Shine event, we had the privilege of hearing from Volunteers of America, Dakotas program staff, John Hart and Stephanie Monroe. We also met three individuals whose lives were forever changed by our services. Kavina and Aaron, two young adults who had suffered tumultuous upbringings, and Michael, a Veteran who fell upon hard times after being laid-off and struggled to find employment. Through Axis 180 and our Veterans Services, Kavina, Aaron, and Michael were able to find the support and resources they needed to overcome hardships and find success. Each of them credit Volunteers of America, Dakotas for helping them get back on their feet and find purpose in their lives.

Thank you to the 62 Corporate Sponsors, 102 Table Hosts, and over 900 community leaders who made the 2018 Rise & Shine and memorable and impactful event!
