General Volunteer Activity - Suits for Vets, 2018

Once again, The Salvation Army Kroc Center has teamed up with Burton’s Dry Cleaning, Sunny 101.5, Z 94.3 FM, WSBT 96.1 FM, & New Country 99.9 to provide business suits for veterans. Unemployment for veterans is at an all-time high. In an effort to help prepare our veterans for job readiness we are providing business suits for veterans.  The Kroc Center will be the host site to distribute the suits.

How can you help?  We need volunteers beginning Tuesday, May 15 through Friday, May 18 - you're welcome to join us for an hour or two, but by all means you're definitely welcome to stay all day!!

Sorters needed (15-20/day):  Tuesday and Wednesday 9:00 am - 3:00 pm (both days), in minimum of 2-hour shifts if possible

- Sorting and hanging garments in preparation for the actual shopping day!  This may involve some heavy lifting and standing.

Personal Shoppers / Greeters needed (15-20 on Thursday and Friday): 

                              Thursday, May 17, 10:00 am - 6:00 pm 

                              Friday, May 18, 10:00 am - 6:00 pm

 - Personal Shoppers and greeters will help the Vets find the right suits in their size and perhaps assist them with taking their selections to their cars if needed! If possible, please sign up for minimum 2-hour shifts.

This is a very fun event that we look forward to each year - so come on out join in on the fun and put a smile on the face of a Vet!!

 

We'll see you there!!
