Here's all the latest scoop on what we have been calling the drop-in center. To avoid confusion with the adult drop-in centers in town, we're using the name Homeless Youth Resource Center until the kids pick a name for the center.
Work Day #1: is Saturday November 19th 9-3. More info here: http://www.volunteerkansas.com/Opportunities/Opportunity/328:Cleanup_Day_For_Daytime_Resource_Center_for_Homeless_Youth_
Items still needed for the center:
Food for Drop-In Center Work Day
Paper Goods for the Drop-In Center
Cleaning Supplies for the Drop-In Center
Needs List for Drop-In Center (Larger Items)
If you can help with any of these items or if your church or business would like to host a donation drive or "angel tree" please email firstname.lastname@example.org
After this Saturday's work day, the contractors will be in there working hard to get everything ready for us to move in later in December. The target move-in date and community work day is Dec. 17th, 2011. More info on that work day here: http://www.volunteerkansas.com/Opportunities/Opportunity/337:Extreme_Makeover_Day_for_Youth_Resource_Center
And last but not least, a HUGE thanks to some of the many people working hard to make all of this happen!
