Employee Holiday Meals

We loved seeing the faces of our employees who received one of the holiday meal last year. It was one of the most rewarding ways to give back.  A handful of our most dedicated and hardworking employees were given a holiday meal to share with their family.  We chose to present them with cards this year so that they can choose their meal. Just another way Keystaff Professionals and Midwest Staffing can bring joy and spread holiday cheer.

2nd Harvest Heartland 2022

Our team had so much fun volunteering at 2nd Harvest Heartland last year, that we did it again!  A group of us got together and spent another evening packaging boxes of food.  We partnered with others in the community to prepare 757 boxes of food.  Each of these boxes contained nearly 30 meals for someone in our community.   This truly is one of our favorite ways to volunteer our time to help others.

Toys For Tots 2022

We did it again! Midwest Staffing and KeyStaff Professionals participated in the 2022 “Toys for Tots Campaign”.  We decided to put a goal in place, to collect more than 500 toys this year.  Our 8 branch offices worked together, with some friendly competition, to gather as many toys as we could.  On the final collection day, we slid in with 579 toys, collected and ready to be dropped off at the local collection site.  Putting big smiles on children’s faces Christmas morning makes us so happy!! 

Good In The Hood

Shoe Away Hunger Program

Shoe Away Hunger offers affordable quality footwear for those in need.  In addition, it helps us to raise the important dollars we need to continue feeding over 7,500 people each month through our Food Programs and services.  This amazing program offers a simple and meaningful way for you to join with us as we work together to eliminate local hunger “one sole at a time”.

During this really fun and rewarding event our volunteers sorted new and used shoes that are donated to this organization. They are sold for next to nothing to churches and organizations. The money they raise goes to their food shelf. What a wonderful opportunity and a big difference you have made to many!  

American Cancer Society & Foxtrot 1/2K

Midwest Staffing & KeyStaff Professionals were fortunate to be part of an exciting event, hosted by SafeNet Consulting, to raise money for the American Cancer Society.  The evening was full of stories, a 1/2K walk-run, music, silent auction fun, and photobooth photos!  Raising money for a cause that touches every one of us is so rewarding and we are grateful for the opportunity!

Toys for Tots 2021

Midwest Staffing and KeyStaff Professionals participated in the 2021 “Toys for Tots Campaign”.  We got a little bit of a late start, but between our branches, we gathered well over 200 toys and games!

We are so proud to give back to such an amazing cause knowing that it’s putting big smiles on children’s faces Christmas morning!! 

We are looking forward to participating this year and hoping gather even more toys!!

Second Harvest Heartland Event

To quote everyone’s favorite ogre, “Ogres are like onions. Layers, onions have layers.” – Shrek.

It’s so gratifying when we can partner with such amazing local organizations like Second Harvest Heartland and do just that. At Second Harvest Heartland, they believe no one should ever go hungry, as our region produces more than enough food for everyone. Second Harvest was created in 2001 after joining their MSP and St Paul organizations to bring 44 years of history together! Second Harvest is one of the nation’s largest hunger relief organizations and we at Midwest Staffing and KeyStaff Professionals are proud to be able to partner with them!

So, why onions? Well, just like we have layers at Midwest and KeyStaff, so did Second Harvest that fateful night in January! I mean, literally bags and bags of ONIONS that were donated by local farmers that were as tall as our shortest person on the team. In 2.5 hours, we went through 88 bags of those wonderfully, layered vegetables, or 3,608 lbs. CRAZY! If that doesn’t get your socks knocked off, well, all our onion sorting powers provided 3,066 meals to deserving families and broken down each person that night contributed 177 meals, so we all worked up some sweat!

Second Harvest offers many volunteer opportunities to the community, and they make it incredibly easy to join and give back. If you would like to learn more about them, donate, or sign up to volunteer you can visit their website at: https://www.2harvest.org/about_us/
