WizEducators is excited to host our first annual Shining Lights Event on April 2nd, 2022 from 10-1pm. We are partnering with Edina Give and Go, Love One Another, and Hospitality House Youth Development to support local students in need. During our Shining Lights event, our goal is to make 1000 sandwiches to donate to Love One Another’s 363 days food project (The Sandwich Man). We will also have a raffle with prizes ranging from restaurant gift cards, to books to beautiful artwork, to help raise funds to give to Edina Give and Go and Hospitality House Youth Development. All proceeds from event ticket sales and raffle sales will be donated to our partners. Whether you are two years old and just learning how to be a shining light in our community or 102, this event is geared towards you!

About our partners (who were are serving):
Love One Another’s 363 days food project- “Every night Allan distributes more than 1,800 sandwiches to individuals, shelters, and locations serving the homeless. Making several stops, he provides sandwiches to people and families living on the street, and totally outdoors. In addition we provide sandwiches to 12 Twin Cities partner organizations serving the homeless and poor, which they distribute to temporary shelter residents as they leave to go back on the streets in the morning.”
Edina Give and Go- “There are numerous programs that students can engage in outside of the school day. However, we know that sometimes barriers to student participation exist. Nine percent of students in Edina Public Schools live at or near the poverty line, making it difﬁcult to get engaged. Edina Give and Go is committed to removing ﬁnancial barriers so all students can access the programming offered in our community.”
Hospitality House Youth Development- “Hospitality House Youth Development provides a Christian outreach, focused on the spiritual, intellectual and physical development of inner city youth and their families. Inspired and guided by a strong Christian focus, Hospitality House is a caring community that has high expectations, provides significant support and helps its young people to discover and develop their interests and talents. By opening doors of opportunity, at-risk youth will be equipped to lead with integrity, broken families will be restored, and our North Minneapolis community will be rebuilt.”
