Volunteers are needed to host a Juneteenth Celebration on Sunday, June 19th at New Directions Shelter. Suggested ideas include fun outdoor games and activities for adults and children. We are also looking for a sponsor to provide lunch for the day.
The shelter has a wonderful yard to host the event. In case of rain, the event can be moved inside. Expect 15-20 shelter guests to attend.
Volunteers will need to plan the activities and provide all needed supplies. Suggested time for the event would be early afternoon (starting around 1:00pm) or closer to dinner time (starting between 5:00pm-6:00pm) and should last for about 2 hours.
To volunteer, contact Missy Reams at email@example.com or by phone at 515-244-6251 option 5. ... See MoreSee Less
