Helping Signal Flare on Feb 23

Hey All,

After Grant's inspirational talk last Sunday, we decided to turn our picnic into a service event. So Sunday 23rd February is our first service event of the year! 

What are we doing? 

Going to Musgrave Park between 8.30am and 3pm to help Grant run his BBQ and supply stalls for Brisbane's homeless peoples. 

We need people to come early in the day to help set up, and then the event's been advertised from 10am - 3pm. After 10am, Sunday Assembly will be running a stall to hand out toiletries to Brisbane's Homeless/Needy people. The BBQ also provides food and second hand clothes. 

How can I help? 

We need people to come and help 'staff' the stall from 9.30am til about 3pm. And a couple of people to help set up at 8.30am. 
We're not expecting you to RSVP, but if you could let Jane know when you'll be there, we'll be able to make sure we have the stall covered all day ([masked]). 

Is that all!? Can't I do more?

Grant also needs second hand clothes and (first hand!) toiletries to give out - if you have anything that you're happy to part with, please bring it along. Think about things like your stash of hotel shampoo/conditioner bottles, products you've been given by well-meaning great aunties that you don't really want, things that you no longer use (in a respectable condition!).
Meanwhile, you've already done more! With the generous collection we took at the last Sunday Assembly we've been able to donate $100 to Signal Flare (the charity that runs the BBQ) and we're also buying the bread needed for this month's BBQ.

I'd love to help, but I can't be there.

That's okay, we will organise more of these, further in advance, so hopefully you'll be able to help out further down the line. If you're keen to donate some clothes/toiletries give them to someone you know who can come along or text Jane to get her address and you can drop them to her before next Sunday [masked]).

Any questions at all, please reply to this post.
Hope to see you there!

Cheers, Jane and The Sunday Assembly Brisbane Organising Committee

    I can be there from 8.30 am if needed. With plenty of travel/random toiletries sitting around in a cupboard that I've been wanting to part with but didn't want to see end up in landfill :-)

    Hi Zara
    I'll be there from 8:30am. I've also RSVPed to Signal Flare's event on Facebook. Just want to be mindful that I don't get counted twice.
