Are you a proud New Yorker looking for ways to give back to homeless and formerly homeless adults, families, LGBTQ young adults and veterans this holiday season?
Jericho Project is a 33-year old, nationally-acclaimed nonprofit organization that enables homeless New Yorkers to attain housing, employment, and mental and physical health services. This year we invite you to join us for our 1 st Annual Day of Action to raise awareness about the critical issue of homeless facing NYC and spread some holiday cheer to fellow New Yorkers who may be alone and need support during the holiday season.
WHO: Volunteers of all ages and backgrounds! Come alone or with your family, friends or colleagues for a fun day of holiday giving back!
WHAT: Decorate our supportive housing residences to spread some holiday cheer, assemble gift/food/hygiene care packages, and distribute to our Jericho tenants at a festive lunch! (Lunch will be provided by Jericho Project)
WHERE: Jericho Project owns seven supportive housing residences for homeless New Yorkers: six in the Bronx and one in Harlem. We will place you (and our team) at a residence volunteer project depending on the size of your party.
WHEN: Friday, December 2, 2016 from 10:30am to 3:30pm.
*Have to work that day? Get your whole office involved in a corporate volunteer project and kick off the holiday season together, building employee morale!
WHY: Thanks to Jericho Project’s supportive services and resources and our many community and corporate partners, our clients finally have their own safe, quality apartments after living in shelters, halfway houses, and on the streets and subways for years. We call upon our fellow New Yorkers to support and advocate for them and others who desperately want off the street and an opportunity to rebuild their lives and families.
HOW: Volunteers may register at http://weblink.donorperfect.com/JerichoProjectDayofAction2016 before Wednesday, November 16 th. However, we suggest early registration to secure your participation. A tax deductible donation of $100 per volunteer or $350 for a group of four will cover the cost of all Day of Action supplies and distributions, as well as support Jericho’s life-changing, cost-effective year round services and programming.
For corporate volunteer groups and sponsorships, please contact Michelle Anthony at: firstname.lastname@example.org and/or (646) 624-2341 ext. 113.
