Want to Volunteer???
Groups of Volunteers are needed December 8, 2018. The available hours are 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The 15th District Parent Teacher Association (PTA) will host the annual Take What You Can Tote clothing drive at the Clothing Assistance Program (CAP), 319 South 15th Street. More than 200 families will visit CAP during this time to collect free gently used clothing. Volunteers are needed to sort clothes, greet families, rehang new clothes, etc.
Please call Justin Willis at 485-7450 (office) or 439-8782 (cell) to volunteer.
Families will shop the gently used clothing and accessories and receive as much as two large plastic bags of clothing. (Many of these items will be given as gifts to JCPS students. To make this event a success, volunteers are needed to help with several functions:
•Stocking and sorting piles of gently used clothing
•Greeting families and explaining instructions
•Moving boxes, crates, and palettes of clothing, shoes, and accessories.
•Arranging and staging clothes and accessories
•Help this event be festive, welcoming, and operate smoothly.
•Carry bags of clothing for families.
We hope to offer volunteer assistance to help these families–many of whom have strollers and small children by transporting the bags by hand or rolling cart to parked vehicles or a bus stop. Volunteers are encouraged to park at Junior Achievement, 1401 West Muhammad Ali Boulevard, or at Joshua
Tabernacle Baptist Church, 426 South 15th Street. Volunteers will be provided with refreshment and snacks. For more information about scheduling your group to volunteer or to volunteer as an individual, call Justin Willis at 485-7450.
