This Sunday, December 2nd, there will be an open house in Edmonds, WA that is part fundraiser for the PVs, part information session on volunteering, and part item collection for a local non-profit, Shower to the People. The email I sent out to invite people is below and has all the specifics. If you are in the area and would like to join us, email Jill at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Think globally, act locally – We have all heard this phrase, and I think it is a good theme for this year’s PV Volunteer Live with Passion Fundraiser/Open House, the annual event to raise funds for the PV Volunteers, the organization that I have been involved with for over 24 years. We haven’t had our annual potluck these last few years and I’ve been wanting to bring it back. It is a great way to get everyone together and catch up, let you know what the program is up to, especially in the Seattle area, and raise a little bit of money to help with these programs. What better time than around Thanksgiving, right?
This year I also wanted to add a local giving opportunity as well. If you are interested, you can bring items to help “Shower to the People”, an organization that provides showers for the homeless at Trinity Lutheran in Lynnwood every Saturday morning. Any of the following items would be greatly appreciated: New or clean Tshirts (all sizes) socks (same criteria) Women’s undies sizes 6-8, women’s socks. New men’s boxer briefs (med & large.) Now with cold weather – knitted hats & gloves, blankets (clean ) Travel size stuff. shampoo, deo,toothpaste/brushes, combs et. always good to have on hand.
Refreshments and some finger foods will be provided, but please bring an hors d’œuvre, munchie or dessert to share.
Live with Passion Open House
Sunday, December 2nd 2pm-5pm
I know the holidays are a busy time of year for everyone, but hopefully you can join us if even just for a short time! Please feel free to bring a friend or anyone you think would be interested in what we are doing. There will also be an opportunity to sign up to volunteer at various places in Seattle through the PVs if you are interested. Hope to see you on the 2nd!
*Live with Passion is the PV Volunteers annual fundraiser to help keep the programs of the PV Volunteers going. Currently we run programs in Wyoming County, West Virginia, Seattle, WA, Aurora, IL and Brooklyn, NY. To read more about the program go to www.pvprogram.org.
