Do It In A Day

The Do it in a Day Committee puts together small projects/volunteer opportunities that can be completed in one day.  We have several events coming up with our some of our community partners:

WHERE:  Admiral Room – 237 Main St, Buffalo, NY  14203
WHY:  The Women’s Foundation’s goal is to “create a culture of possibility so each woman and girl to live, grown, and lead to her fullest potential.”  While this is a daytime volunteer event, if you have any “use it or lose” vacation/paid time off as you near year end, this would be a great way to spend a little time benefiting the community and then taking the remainder of the day for a little self-care, holiday shopping, or even making some early holiday cookies or meals to stash in the freezer for later.
DRESS:  On the dressier side – this a fashion event, business/work appropriate attire.
VOLUNTEER DUTIES:  Tasks could include helping assemble swag bags, acting as greeters, staffing the registration table, selling raffle & wine pull tickets, and assisting with the silent auction.
OTHER NOTES:  water, coffee, and light snacks will be provided.
