The Green Chair Project - Volunteer Event

Please join us!  Many of us are looking to make a difference in the world.  If you would like to volunteer at a Raleigh non-profit to help those in need, now is your chance to do it through the Raleigh-Durham Singles Meetup Group!  You can bring your teenagers who are looking for community service projects too!

We are going to meet at the Green Chair Project off of Capital Blvd (southbound) inside the beltline in Raleigh.  
Please 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!

All new volunteers: Please sign the waiver before attending (only need to fill this out one time prior to volunteering your first time)
http://www.thegreenchair.org/revised-form-volunteer.php

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!

Please consider bringing some household items as donations (see the link at the bottom for acceptable items).

There are often many items that go unused in our own house or our living circumstances may change. Those large or small items are the items that are needed within our own community. Thank you for taking the time to take those household items out that are stashed away in the back of a closet or cupboard. Your generosity benefits others in need.  CANNOT accept large appliances, toys, mattresses, office desks or file cabinets, computers or other electronics nor any items that are outdated, torn, stained, broken or otherwise damamged. If you have questions about what we accept, please contact: [masked]."

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
