Behrend Builders D25 Project 2018 with GLOE

Tuesday, December 25, 2018
10:00 AM - 2:00 PM
Youth Shelter, NW DC

Join GLOE and Behrend Builders to paint and beautify a youth homeless shelter serving the LGBTQ and transgender community. Transgender youth have a suicide rate of 40%, and are far more likely than their peers to end up homeless without a support network. Help create a welcoming space that provides them with a home, a support network, and critically important case management.

No previous painting experience necessary!

Afterwards, volunteers are invited (but not required) to help prepare Christmas dinner for the shelter residents.

Please note children must be 14 and over to participate, no exceptions.

We request a $20/person tax-deductible program fee to help us cover the costs of supplies, including gifts for clients, Santa suits, party decorations, arts & crafts, and games. All of the money from program fees except for a small credit card processing fee goes directly towards D25 supplies. If the program fee is in any way a barrier to volunteering please don't hesitate to contact Sonya.
