Hello AmeriCorps Alums! I wanted to let you all know that there's a service project coming upthat Hands On Hartford is hosting, in partnership withthe Connecticut VISTA Program and the Peace Corps. We're working to engage those who are alumni of, currently serving and/or interested indomestic and international service programs: Public Allies, Peace Corps, VISTA, other AmeriCorps Programs, JesuitVolunteer Corps, etc. There will of course be service involved (as detailed below) but will also be a great opportunity to meet and network with people in the same field and reflect together on what service means to us, especially on a holiday such as 9/11.
Here are the details:
  • It's going to be onTuesday, September 11 from 6 - 8:30 pm
  • At South Congregational Church (1 Buckingham Street, Hartford) - parking instructions will be provided upon RSVP
  • Volunteers will assist in three service projects:
    • Assembling & stocking the shelves of our Community Food Pantry (we're remodeling and expanding - YAY!)
    • Creating decorations, goodie bags, etc. for the Grand Re-Opening (date:TBD, but late September)
    • Packing boxes to send overseas to our brother and sister service members in the military
This joint service project is being capped at 50 people, and we're trying to reserve a certain number of spots for each program. So please RSVP toemily.kaas@gmail.comif you're interestedby Tuesday, September 4,and please feel free to forward as you see fit!
