IRYA students from Virginia, Mountain Iron/Buhl, Mesabi East, Southridge and Hibbing are heading to the Twin Cities for a Service Learning Trip and some fun!  

They will be shopping, preparing, cooking and serving dinner for the families at the Ronald McDonald House in Minneapolis.  There are up to 100 individuals staying at the facility.  After clean up, they will go to their hotel and relax by the pool.

The next morning, they will volunteer at the Salvation Army, helping underprivileged children at a youth day camp with various activities througout the day.  Then it's off to the Mall of America, where they will have lunch at the Hard Rock Cafe and then some free time to shop and explore!
