I have sent an e-mail to volunteer evenings on the 14th and 15th. I know many of us work downtown even though we live in Greenwood. I know it's hard to group volunteer but I wanted to put the opportunity out if anybody wanted to volunteer on thier own.
"Lincoln Apartments are being built at 530 North Holmes Avenue, just west of IUPUI on the north side of Michigan Street by Volunteers of America of Indiana. The 75 units will be for veterans who are at risk of homelessness or who have previously been homeless.
On November 13th, 14th, and 15th 2013, Volunteers of America of Indiana needs as many volunteers as possible to set up all of the units so they are ready to be moved into. This includes unloading trucks with the furniture and home goods, setting up beds (no tools needed), and setting up each apartment so it will feel like home when folks move in.
Volunteer shifts are available from 8 AM – 8 PM on November 13th, 14th, and 15th. Individuals and groups can sign up for as many hours as they would like to serve on one, two, or all three days.
Anyone interested should contact Lauren Kenney at [masked]."
