What we're about

Open Door Outreach is a terrific group for volunteerism, community involvement, and friendship! ODO is secular, nonpolitical, and open to everyone. There are no membership fees and no charges to attend any meetups; any donations are entirely optional. On the first Monday of each month, we meet to plan and learn about volunteer and community activities --and we also enjoy great people and great conversation! However, attending the monthly meetings is not required, we have numerous get togethers each month for participating in various types of volunteer, community, and fun social activities. So... this is a great Meetup spot for anyone who enjoys fun, friendship, and helping the community. :)

Humane Society of Pulaski County dog wash

Great summer fun with lots of socializing, too! Show up and help at any time between 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. You do not need to sign up in advance to help. Very nice elevated tubs and other equipment provided by HSPC make the dog washing much easier. Pop-up canopies will provide shade for dogs and washers. Lunch is provided, usually pizza from Little Caesars. There is time to take short breaks, sit and socialize, so it might be helpful to bring a folding lawn/camping chair.
