Helping at the Washington Heights center holiday party
December 15, 2007Free
The Harlem Dowling Washington Heights center would like assistance from a small group of our volunteers to help set up and run their holiday party with the families. The party is at a church 2 subway stops north from the usual Harlem Dowling center. We will arrive by noon to help set up and the party starts at 1:00. Between 1:00 and 4:00 we will aid the supervisor and case workers in running the party and in spending time with the families. If needed, we will help clean up from 4:00 to 4:30.
Most of the kids we have seen throughout the year will be attending so this is a great opportunity to maintain the mentoring relationships Harlem Dowling volunteers have built with the kids this year! We will also have the chance to meet some new families and tell them about our future events.
As spots are limited to 5 volunteers please cancel online if you can’t attend anymore and notify us projects leaders.
Hope to see you there!
