Volunteers Needed - GR Home for Veterans

Date: April 24, 2013

Dear GVSU
 
The Grand Rapids Home for Veterans has an annual carnival for their residents. While many have family members that come to escort them to the carnival, there is a large need for volunteers to escort those without any family members. You would meet your veteran and either walk with or push their wheelchair to the on-site carnival.
 
The event is Saturday, July 27 from 11am – 3 pm. Volunteers need to be at the event at 10:15 am for a mini-training.
 
This is a great event for student organizations or youth groups too (should be at least 16 years old). Bring a friend or your family to help.
 
I am challenging the GVSU community to have at least 25 volunteers for this event. 
 
Let’s give back to those who put their life on the line for our freedoms.
 
Contact me to sign up.
 
Thank you for all you do!
