On Friday October 2 and Saturday October 3rd, 2009 BonaResponds will be holding a local service weekend in conjunction with the National Livestrong Day. We will have volunteers working at multiple sites across the area. As part of the Livestrong Day our focus will be on helping Cancer survivors.
If you know of any cancer survivor (or current patient) that needs some free help, be it mowing the yard, raking leaves (although early October might be a bit early), painting, or fixing a porch, or who know what, we would like to help.
But we need your help. Before we can help, we need to know who needs the help. So if you know of a cancer survivor who could use a little helping hand, please let us know. (contact information is below).
This is an entirely volunteer effort but we will ask that we be allowed to have a bake sale at the site to raise awareness of both BonaResponds and Livestrong. Profits of the bake sale will go to help fund Livestrong efforts around the globe.
The event, as all BonaResponds events, is open to all. It would be a great day for local businesses/offices to come out and volunteer! Or get your class together and make it a class project as well!
On Friday Oct 2 the work will run from 3pm -7pm (The Bake Sale will go from 11-2 on campus, then be moved to the work site.) On Saturday work will start at 10:00 and is expected to be completed by 4:00.
Details will be coming in the coming weeks.
