We are going to meet at the Green Chair Project off of Capital Blvd (southbound) inside the beltline in Raleigh from 10:00 am -1:00 pm, Saturday, February 16thPlease wear work clothes. Some of us may be cleaning furniture, sorting items, staging items in the showroom, painting, or doing one of many other jobs. This will be fun!

There are a wide variety of tasks, and you get to select the type of task that interest you, such as:  organizing donations, staging donations like a furniture store, cleaning, fixing things, unloading, loading, and/or moving furniture or boxes, among many other tasks suitable for women and men of all ages.  Please join us and see how much fun it can be to work together and help this worthwhile cause!  I look forward to volunteering with you!
