Community LINC crowdfunding campaign

WRITTEN BY LAUREN FRECHIN

Who isn’t addicted to social media nowadays? Use your force for good and help Community LINCraise $25,000 for bedding, kitchen and bath essentials.

Join the campaign dubbed #HomesMatter on Wednesday, Feb. 17. Volunteers are needed for one-hour shifts throughout the day from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. to post, tweet, share, or email about the campaign. Posts and things to be shared will be prepared in advance and you’re more than welcome to create their own.

Volunteers can either bring their own technology or use laptops at the facility, where snacks will be provided. Anyone is welcome to participate and use their Twitter, Facebook and Instagram accounts as a platform to raise awareness and funds.

Community LINC exists to provide interim/immediate housing and services to families battling homelessness. Follow-up services are also offered once a family has successfully completed the program.

#HomesMatter will be an easy and fun way to volunteer with friends for a great cause. Contact us atoutreach@thecallkc.org to sign-up.

IMMEDIATE HELP NEEDED TO PREPARE HOME FOR FAMILY

WRITTEN BY LAUREN FRECHIN

Make this holiday season of giving a warm one for a family in need of shelter. Community LINC desperately needs 6-10 volunteers this week to assist with apartment prep/turnover for their temporary housing program.

This is a unique opportunity to help a family transition out of homelessness. Volunteer shifts are available Monday, Dec. 7 through Thursday, Dec. 10 from 9 a.m.- 5 p.m. Any amount of time you can donate is crucial so the new residents can move in this week. Volunteers will help with cleaning, painting, moving small pieces of furniture and other preparations.

If you can help this week, please contactoutreach@thecallkc.org immediately to sign-up for a shift.
