Staining a Wooden Shade Structure and Bench for Reston's Homeless

Help the homeless with a scraper and paintbrush on a Saturday morning in July. Please BYO paint brush if you have it. If you don't have one we will provide it for you.

The Embry Rucker Community Shelter (ERCS) is a 70-bed residential shelter that provides healthy, safe, emergency housing for families and single men and women. They are dedicated to helping clients overcome the circumstances that led to their homelessness, and facilitate their transition to stable housing. They are open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year and employ 20 full-time staff members.

    Hi All - We will be meeting at the shelter Rain or Shine. If it is too wet to stain/paint we will work on other projects inside and outside including painting interior doors and some gardening projects. Dress accordingly :) You may want to bring work gloves if you have them. We will probably be finished by 11 and then head to RTC for a bite to eat. There will also be a group of international students from George Mason joining us for the project. See you all tomorrow! ~Nicholas
