VEAP to receive Franciscan International Award

Bloomington-based Volunteers Enlisted to Assist People has been chosen for the 2017 Franciscan International Award for its service to the poor in the south metro of the Twin Cities.

The board of advisers of Franciscan Retreats and Spirituality Center in Prior Lake selected VEAP, which will be honored May 11 at the Wilds Golf Club in Prior Lake. The award recognizes people and organizations “who symbolize the spirit and apostolic zeal of St. Francis of Assisi.”

VEAP provides resources and food for low-income residents in south Minneapolis, Bloomington, Richfield and Edina. Father Richard Kaley of St. Bonaventure in Bloomington nominated VEAP for the award.
