MINNEAPOLIS -- The London games have everyone in the Olympic spirit, including the Greater Twin Cities United Way.
The charity hosted a speed volunteering event inside the IDS Crystal Court Wednesday.
Young people from the Phyllis Wheatley Community Center stuffed healthy snack packs and created homework kits.
They are trying to raise awareness and recruit volunteers for the United Way Action Day on August 22.
Today's volunteers received gold medals for their help.
