How To Put The U in Volunteer: Week of October 22

A volunteer update from Patty, the GLCC Volunteer Coordinator:

Come One Come All!

All Hands On Deck!

-=Insert 3rd completely cliché catch phrase here=-  :)

 

You may have seen the emails, the blog posts, the Facebook status updates, etc about our Winter Gear Drive (donations gladly accepted) – but have you considered helping us with sorting, folding and generally keeping things in order?

Many times I am asked what can be done at the GLCC that doesn’t involve answering the phones and the like – this is a prime example.

Last year we had nearly 8,000 items to sort, organize, log and hand out to those in need. It was fantastic, it was epic, it was a large undertaking that we are more than happy to do again this year – and hopefully surpass last year’s count.

Please consider coming down to help us with this task – and if you have any extra blankets, coats, hand warming packets or the like – bring them down with you when you volunteer! Email the GLCC for more details.

Hope to see you soon ~ Stay Toasty Pittsburgh!
