The blue button took me to a list of 12 different projects I could sign up for. I chose Calvary Place. The description for this project said: "Help clean up this historic building that will soon be transformed into supportive housing for homeless individuals."
But I also could have chosen the Foundry Card Factory. " Help make cards for members of Foundry who are sick, celebrating a birthday, or anniversary. We'll also be making Christmas cards to hand out to clients at the Friday Walk-In Mission's annual Christmas party."
Or I could have chosen Jubilee Jobs. "Work with individuals seeking employment to conduct mock job interviews." That sounds exciting!
And by clicking the button that looks like this, I automatically added Great Day of Service to my Outlook.
I think I really want to spend Nov. 3 helping to clean the grounds around Calvary Place. I am still tempted, however, by the opportunities to help cook a meal at Christ House or to help prepare vegetable garden beds for winter at the Transitional Housing Corporation.
Shortly after I signed up, I got this email:
Here's a message from your VolunteerSpot organizer, Kevin Wright, Director of Social Justice Ministries:
Dear Dean Snyder,

PLEASE KEEP THIS EMAIL MESSAGE - it's your link for accessing your signup at anytime in the future.I notice that I can still change my mind about which project I want to help do.
Technology is brilliant!
