By Nicole Laflamme, Host Committee member

shoeSign-up extended to Aug 15th!

Are you organized? Do you have experience sorting through boxes of valuable items? Do you enjoy helping people? Do you like free food?

If you’ve answered “yes” to these questions, then I have an opportunity for you!

This year, the SAA is participating in a charitable service project with Shoes and Clothes for Kids (SC4K).

When: Tuesday, August 18, 9:30 am – 12:30 pm
Where: Woodland Data Center, 4966 Woodland Avenue, Cleveland, OH 44104 (offsite)
Register: http://bit.ly/saa-service

SC4K buys pallets of clothes that need to be counted, sorted, and packed into smaller boxes for its distribution partners. Packing days are a fun opportunity that involves some physical labor, including:

  • Making boxes.
  • Opening and unpacking boxes.
  • Breaking down boxes.
  • Packing boxes.
  • And then starting the process all over again!

Register: Please fill out this very short form by August 15 at http://bit.ly/saa-service

A minimum of 10 volunteers is needed.

FREE lunch will be provided to volunteers after the shift.
