The Minnesota Historical Society's volunteer and intern programs welcome people from all communities to engage in mission-related projects. Over 2,500 volunteers and interns contribute 71,000 hours annually. This diverse volunteer corps helps to achieve the MNHS mission — Using the Power of History to Transform Lives.
Roy scanned grants documents from FY 2010. He then linked them to the new grants system, FLUXX so they are now available to staff in that system. The work that he did allowed SHPO staff to send six boxes of grants program files to long term storage. This opened up a lateral file for the next fiscal year's grants. Staff say they would never have had time to do this project. Roy is now moving on to another project, mapping coordinates for part of SHPO's property inventory.
