    Help Thy Neighbor

    Community Service - Help Thy Neighbor


    Description:

    Have you been wanting to do more community service? Do you want to give back to those less fortunate? Maybe you have been wanting to volunteer with a group of well meaning people but do not know how because you are not affiliated with any service, political or religious organization. If so, then this is your opportunity to help make a difference.

    iBlack is looking for volunteers to help us provide furniture and other home items to families moving out of shelters or otherwise living without their basic need items.

    We are working with A Wider Circle's Neighbor-to-Neighbor Program. Families are referred to A Wider Circle by more than 300 social service agencies throughout Maryland, D.C., and Virginia. After speaking with their staff and scheduling an appointment to visit their storage facility, each family has the opportunity to select the items they need, free of charge.

    The most commonly requested items are beds, dressers, and kitchen tables, truly the basic necessities for the home. By providing these items to families in need, A Wider Circle is helping to create the stability and independence that all families deserve.

    Additional aspects of this program include:

    Emergency response for victims of fires or crime, and for new mothers unable to bring children home due to insufficient resources

    Wellness baskets for furniture recipients including healthy snacks and information such as healthy eating, relaxation techniques, creativity exercises, and better sleep tips

    We will start at 9:00 am at A Wider Circle. No need to bring any supplies. Everything is provided by the Neighbor-to-Neighbor Program. NO experience is required - just bring a desire to help others and roll up your sleeves

    This program has made a difference in many people’s lives over the years and we hope you will join us by signing up below.


    Suggested Attire:
    For volunteer safety, please wear closed toe shoes, comfy clothes, and no tank tops. Your registration also means that you understand that you are volunteering at your own risk.
