School choice fair

St. Paul Public Schools will hold a school choice fair for families planning to enroll their children into early childhood, pre-k and kindergarten next year. The fair will be held at Washington Technology school, 1495 Rice St. on Saturday, Jan. 20 from 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Parents will be able to meet teachers, principals and members of the board of education. There will also be free early childhood screenings for children ages 3 through 5. More information can be found at www.spps.org/schoolchoice.


Anxiety support group

NAMI Minnesota (National Alliance on Mental Illness) sponsors free support groups for persons with anxiety disorders. The groups help individuals develop better coping skills and find strength through sharing their experiences. An Open Door Anxiety and Panic support group meets on the East Side of St. Paul from 6:30 to 8 p.m., on the first and third Thursday of the month, at Woodland Hills Church, 1740 Van Dyke Street. For information, call NAMI at 651-645-2948.


Help seniors with snow shoveling

Help seniors on the East Side have a safer winter.  Volunteer to shovel snow so that seniors can have clear sidewalks and driveways.  This is a wonderful opportunity to volunteer with a work team, church group, school group, or other group to help seniors.  This is a flexible opportunity — help when you can as often as you can.  Individuals are also welcome to volunteer.

For those interested in helping out, apply online at eastsideelders.org or contact East Side Elders at Volunteer@EastSideElders.org or 651-683-2413 for any questions.  Please note that because East Side Elders serves a vulnerable population including seniors and people with disabilities, they are unable to serve as a site for court-ordered community service volunteers.
