Can you help us set up on Saturday 13 April 2019?
We would really appreciate the help of men, women and teenagers to help us set up on Saturday afternoon at the Glen Eira College Sports Hall from 1pm. It would be really helpful if you could let us know that you're able to help us with this task.
We need help wrapping, packing, breaking down boxes, writing notes, cleaning up... on Sunday 14 April
We have a job for everyone. Can you help?
This is our 'big day'. We welcome anyone and everyone aged 5-95. There's a job for everyone. Please arrive at about 10am; we expect to finish around about lunchtime. We also need some great people to either stay back or to arrive to help us clean up - not the most glamorous of jobs but one that needs to be done so please think about helping us with that too. Feel free to just turn up but it would help us if you could let us know as your subject line] that you're planning to come.

Can you volunteer to deliver our Bags of Love?
For the Xmas 2018 Bags of Love exercise, we will need at least 90 [!!!] volunteer drivers so PLEASE put your hand up if you can help.
What's involved? You will need to:
preregister that you are prepared to do this
call your designated contact person SEVERAL DAYS PRIOR to Packing Day to arrange a mutually convenient day, time and place for the delivery
collect your 'load' from Glen Eira College on Sunday 2 December between 12 noon and 1pm
complete your delivery in the 7-10 days following Packing Day on Sunday 2 December
understand that the delivery will need to be made during office hours
appreciate the extremely serious need for ABSOLUTE confidentiality in order to protect the women and children taking refuge in the Safe House to which you are assigned
undertake to NOT disclose ANY information whatsoever about the Safe House to which you are assigned: not its name; its address or even its suburb; nor the name, email or phone number of the contact person I have been given to ANYONE including your family, friends, colleagues or any other charity or organisation
how far [in time or kms] you're prepared to drive each way from home or work to make the delivery
confirming that you understand and agree to abide by point 7 above
We will acknowledge receipt of your email and then contact you again in mid-November with the contact details of your assigned Safe House once the jigsaw of matching drivers and Safe Houses has been achieved.
IDEAS OF WHAT TO GIVE: Can't get out to buy something? Can't get to our set up or packing day? Can't manage a pre-delivery? That's OK - make a tax deductible donation and we'll use that money to buy something on your behalf.
