 A Wider Circle service day
Date: 12/08/2018
Time: 9:00:00 AM
Description:

On Saturday, December 8, from 9:00 to 11:00 a.m., please join BFM’s Peace & Social Justice Committee in our sixth annual volunteer day during A Wider Circle’s December Holiday Giving Program, called Hope for the Holidays. A Wider Circle (AWC) is a non-profit organization that assists individuals and families transitioning out of shelters to more stable living situations by providing “basic need items” such as furniture. During the month of December, AWC seeks to make the holidays a time of joy for these families by providing new holiday gifts to them. This year we will be helping with important work in the other areas of the warehouse (but not the "North Pole" gift area).

Please join us to help assist clients in selecting needed household items, to help organize furniture/household items in the warehouse, or to assist with administrative tasks. Individuals and families are welcome! Students are especially welcome to help and can get SSL (student service learning) hours for volunteering here.

See www.awidercircle.org for details and directions (in Silver Spring). This is a great opportunity to get to know others at BFM while helping out a great cause!

If you are unable to join us but would like to contribute, please consider donating money to the December Social Concerns Box. Or you can take new toys and other items to AWC’s North Pole (the earlier in the month, the better). Needed items (new) for the Holiday Program are games, books, dolls; hats, gloves, and scarves; body lotion, soaps; and gift cards. You can learn more at:  http://awidercircle.org/holidays/
