What should I bring & wear?
Just bring yourself, and make sure to wear comfortable closed-toed shoes, plus a hat and sunblock if it’s hot.
What should I expect?
We start promptly at 10 am by going over some quick updates on our work, and then we begin assigning different engagement areas to teams consisting of 3 or 4 people based on submissions from the community. We then go out and engage with our neighbors experiencing homelessness. Inexperienced volunteers will be assigned to groups where they can learn from more experienced volunteers.
What are we trying to accomplish on engagement days?
What do we offer to our neighbors experiencing homelessness?
