Sunrise Sanctuary Volunteer Day and Lunch Potluck

HI EVERYONE! We're excited to host a work day at Sunrise Sanctuary!! Plus a light pot-luck lunch to start the day off. We will have the two long tables set up.

Please bring a chair, water or drinks for yourself, mud boots or old shoes, gloves and LOTS of ENERGY.

The rescue animals are fabulous and Sunrise Sanctuary is wonderful for supporting a wide variety of unwanted farm animals. Guests are welcome. Lets all pitch in and make the animals home tidy and clean!

We might need some tools, but we will be posting more about that as the event gets closer.

THANKS Animal LOVING FRIENDS!! -Laura Standfield

    Thanks sooooo much everyone that came out today!! What a great day, perfect weather, yummy food and awesome helpers.
    I LOVE our Vegan Meetup group. We have such a wonderful, caring, interesting group of people in our meetup! The animals are happy to have us, they loved belly rubs and all the attention. And of course cleaned, mucked out barns to live in! I chatted with Cammy and she said we could make this a regular work day outing every other month. What does everyone this of this idea?? THANKS again..it was a wonderful day. :)

      I would love to volunteer again. I feel in love with Wesley. I have never met a 1000 lb cow that begs for hugs and kisses before. OXOXOXO . I would be willing to car pool as well. It was a 45 minute drive from Westerville

    Seeing the animals happy and free is such a good reminder of why we're vegan. Great to see people come out to help maintain a nice home for our animal friends :)

    I haven't been to a meet up before. I tried to make the annual pot luck but was unable to attend. My fiancé and I will DEFINITELY be at this meet up! What should we bring, food wise?

    2 · August 26, 2013

    • Laura S.

      Side dishes are perfect, salads (like quinao, leafy greens, pasta or veggie cucumber salads), fruit salads or cut up fruit tray, small sandwiches can be simple or fancy, and everyone loves vegan desserts!! Im bringing my famous mini cupcakes!!
