As mentioned in previous issues of Weekly Connections, the Emerging Leaders Shared Interest Group has partnered with our 2019 charity, The Harbour, to bring our members a BOMA-exclusive, hands-on volunteer project! On Friday, May 3 our Emerging Leaders invite you to join them in their efforts to help renovate and refurnish one of The Harbour’s shelter sites, located in Des Plaines.
The project involves painting the site’s “Resource Room,” which is used for the young ladies to do their homework and apply to jobs. The project also includes the painting of additional bedrooms so the Emerging Leaders will need all hands on deck. Please take some time out of your busy schedules to give back for a great cause! Come for the whole day, half a day, or as much time as you can afford!
Perhaps you can’t attend the Emerging Leaders Volunteer Project but would still like to contribute. That’s great! Here are some other ways to help.
These are photos of the Resource room and bedroom that need painting.
The Emerging Leaders have requested the following items:
- Ladders/Step stools
- Paint brushes
- Paint rollers
- Painters tape
- Paint tray
- Drop cloths/plastic tarps
- Paper Towels
- Garbage bags
By purchasing items on The Harbour’s Amazon Wish List, you can contribute to this project as well. Items marked as “Shelter Resource Room” will be used to furnish the room.
Please help BOMA/Suburban Chicago and the Emerging Leaders make this a successful volunteer effort!Sign up to volunteer today!
