Women’s Service Day is approaching fast and the planning team is finalizing details. Registered participants should have received their crew information by now. Meanwhile, we’d like to remind you of some logistics.
Activities planned for October 3 will range from on-site and off-site tasks in support of Nuestra Casa neighborhood center, projects within Westcore neighborhood, and assignments at local nonprofit agencies who have come to depend on our annual event. (Read more about where we’re making a difference.) Morning crews will begin at 8:30 a.m. and afternoon crews will start right after lunch, between 1:15 and 1:30.
Our lunch celebration will be held from 11:45 to 1 p.m. at Hope Church, centrally located at 77 West Eleventh Street in Holland (between River and Pine Avenues, just south of downtown Holland and west of Centennial Park). We are requesting a cash lunch donation of $5.00, to be collected upon arrival at the church.
We’ll also be holding a silent auction and raffle during lunch so bring your checkbook!
For our donation drive, we’re going to help equip Nuestra Casa with necessities for its educational, social, and community programs. We’ve set up three gift registries to make shopping easier for participants (but you can certainly go to the local stores and shop if you prefer).
• Teerman’s in Holland
• Bed, Bath & Beyond
• My Registry
Read our blog post about the donation drive for more details.
Participants: If you have a last-minute change in plans (sickness, business crisis, etc.) and are unable to participate—or just need directions—please contact us via e-mail as soon as possible.
Looking forward to serving with our volunteers on October 3!
