Feed My Starving Children

Midwest Staffing Group and KeyStaff Professionals had an amazing night volunteering with the team at Feed My Starving Children! Together, we packed a whopping 10,152 meals. Every single one counts in making a difference! Feed My Starving Children is a Christian non-profit spreading hope through nutrition-packed meals for children globally. Proud to be a part of this impactful cause!

Toys for Tots in 2023

Gearing up for Toys for Tots in 2023 was a blast, marking our triumphant third year in spreading joy to kids in our neighborhoods! Not only did we have a blast gathering goodies, but we even made on appearance on Kare 11 to spread the word about our fantastic success!

Hope Lodge Meal

Teams from Midwest Staffing and KeyStaff Professionals were fortunate enough to come together to bring and prepare a meal for the patients staying at the American Cancer Society’s Hope Lodge in Minneapolis.  We loved the opportunity to connect with some of the patients and hear their courageous stories.  It was a heartwarming evening of sharing and team bonding! We were humbled by the experience and so grateful for organizations like the American Cancer Society who help bring hope to so many.

2nd Harvest Heartland

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!! 

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/

My Very Own Bed

Midwest Staffing and Keystaff Professionals are honored to have volunteered and assisted My Very Own Bed – Providing new beds to kids in need!

Our teams designed and assembled beautiful dream kits for each bed. Once completed, we helped deliver beds and the dream kits to children that were in need of beds in our local community. It was an incredible experience and very heartfelt. We especially loved seeing the kids light when they received a bed where they can enjoy sleep and personal space. Our teams are already looking forward to the next time we volunteer for this amazing non-profit organization founded by Michael J. Allen.
