Who needs an intern?! 
Does anyone else feel like there are never enough hours in the day to get your work done? Northland CAPS is currently looking for businesses who would like an intern in the spring! See below for full details,and be sure to click on the links to learn more about NCAPS and how to request an intern!
 
Does your business or organization have a project that really needs to get done but you don't have the manpower to complete it? Let  Northland CAPS  help you with that. We are in the process of securing unpaid internship opportunities for our 385 student associates from nine districts throughout the Northland in five different strands: Digital Media and Design, Engineering and Advanced Manufacturing, Global Business and Logistics, Medicine and Healthcare, and Technology Solutions.

Unpaid Internships will be in the spring semester. This would be a student associate on site with your company from January 13 – May 1, 2020 this can be for 2 or 4 days a week whatever works best for you. 2.5 hours each day, either 7:30 am – 10:00 am or 12:00 pm – 2:30 pm. Just complete the  request  and we will follow up with additional information and details on the process. 
 
Thank you for your time, happy to talk through this with you if you have questions. We appreciate the consideration.

Are you ready for the holidays?
 
I have an offer that might make it less stressful for you and your loved ones.
 
Beginning November 1 st  to December 1 st 1440 Concierge   will be offering a holiday special.  You can give yourself or a loved one an extra three hours of time.  If you’re wondering what three extra hours of time could mean to you during the holiday frenzy, think holiday shopping and gift ideas; home organization before the family arrives, getting holiday cards mailed, gift wrapping, and day-of event prep and coordination.   We do it, so you don’t have to .  And if you need something not listed on our list (click  here  to be taken to the list on our website), please contact us so we can whip up a proposal for you.
 
The Elf Package details:
1. They will be on sale beginning November 4 th , and will end December 1 st .
2. $90 for 3 consecutive hours to delegate your tasks and enjoy some free time!
3. They must be used between October 29 th  to January 17 th , 2020.
4. No long-term commitment required.
5. They can be gifted or kept for yourself.
6. They can only be used Monday through Friday.  
7.  If weekends are requested there will be an additional charge of $25 at start of service.
8. All three hours must be used consecutively.
 
If you know someone who can use a few extra hours in a day this would make a great gift.  
 
Also, keep an eye out for our gift-wrapping events.  We will be, hopefully, setting up in various locations in the Northland.  If you run a small office and want to give your employees a perk, we can set up a gift-wrapping event in your office for you and your employees.  We’ll supply the quality paper and beautiful bows.
 
Let us know when you’re ready to get some extra time or give the gift of time.  We’ll be happy to help you out during the holiday season. 
We are excited to share some news!
A generous donor has offered $25,000 in matching funds to support the Kearney Food Pantry. We need to raise $25,000 in donations by December 15. With your support, the pantry would receive $ 50,000 to use toward a “Forever Home” and be able to continue meeting the increasing demands for nutritious food for families, homeless youth and senior citizens who do not have enough to eat.
 
What a wonderful opportunity to “ Double your Donation” by contributing to this matching campaign. It's not every day an offer like this comes along.  Please consider maximizing your donation by contributing to this exciting opportunity before December 15th.  

We can not do this without your help. Please help us by spreading the word of this opportunity to help our community.
