Willing to do some dirty work to help raise money supporting refugees in our community?!
On June 2nd two blocks of Main Street, Ann Arbor will be closed to traffic for forty restaurants to sell samples of their food at Taste of Ann Arbor. Main Street Area Ann Arbor has offered Washtenaw Refugee Welcome a donation to handle trash at the event.
Our team of volunteers will be setting up trash receptacles, emptying them throughout the event, keeping Main Street clean, and clearing things away after the event. This is a big job, but we are happy to be undertaking it with the help of Recycle Ann Arbor.
We are looking for volunteers to help out. Closer to the event we will email out detailed instructions to those who sign up. This is a great group service activity for students, youth groups, families, etc. as you can enjoy the festivities before or after your shift! Volunteers should be able to be on their feet for a few hours with reasonable breaks, able to carry up to 20 lbs and willing to cart food waste (we will provide gloves, brooms, etc ). All of these times are flexible, so if a different time works for you or you have a group larger than allotted in a shift that is fine, please let us know and we will fit you in.
Thank you so much and don't hesitate to reach out with questions! firstname.lastname@example.org
