Sun Country Everyday Hero:

Mel Barr - Minneapolis

Mel has been our superhero since COVID started! Mel has volunteered at Open Arms of MN for about 18 years and has always been a valued member of their volunteer team! But this year, since COVID started and they had to move delivery outside, they needed extra help. Mel answered the call and has volunteered nearly every weekday for 2.5 hours during delivery and beyond. He assists with loading vehicles for delivery and also cleans and sanitizes community spaces and racks to keep everyone safe and healthy. Since COVID, Mel has volunteered over 400 hours!
