COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT OPPORTUNITIES
Coming up this summer we have a number of community service opportunities available to help give back to our city, Crossroads Soup Kitchen and Buckets of Rain.
Crossroads Soup Kitchen
As we’ve done the past two years, 313 Digital will be preparing and hosting lunch at Crossroads Soup Kitchen on Thursday’s during the summer to benefit local Detroit kids in need. Here are the specifics:
Dates: 7/11, 7/18, 7/25, 8/1, 8/8, 8/15, 8/22, 8/29
Volunteers Need Each Lunch: 3-5 people
Time commitment: 11:30am-2pm
What You’ll Do: prepare and serve lunch to kids and their families; you don’t need to buy anything, and you don’t need any experience
Buckets of Rain
We are bringing back a 313 Digital Community Outreach event that we tried last year and had a great time with. This is an event that can get everyone outside in our great city while also helping to improve it. There is an organization called Buckets of Rain that is working “to support the rebuilding of Detroit by transforming blighted areas into agricultural oases – growing hope, feeding lives one garden at a time”. Please see below for more info.
Dates: 6/22, 7/27, 8/25, 9/28
Volunteers Need Each Date: The more the merrier
Time commitment: 9am-12pm
What You’ll Do: helping with weeding, harvesting and other garden maintenance
