Bipartisan Minn. lawmakers unite to volunteer

Posted: Updated:
ST. PAUL, Minn. (KMSP) -

A bi-partisan group of lawmakers at the State Capitol are trying to prove they really can get along and help the community at the same time.

The group is calling themselves "Lawmakers United to Volunteer" or "LUV" for short.

Catholic charities initially approached lawmakers about starting a volunteer project, and starting tonight, about 25 of them are volunteering tonight at the Dorothy Day Center in St. Paul.

"If legislators, who by the way really—no one thinks can get along on anything—when they see us working together and making a positive difference, then that gives the message that anyone can do this," Rep John Ward (DFL-Baxter) said.

The lawmakers hope to make this a monthly commitment and want to rotate their time among different service organizations.
