Greetings Los Angeles Changemakers!

It’s Cornelia and Jean-Marc again.

How are you doing?

PAUSE: BEFORE YOU RSVP, PLEASE READ THE ENTIRE MESSAGE. Thank you. You Must Also Send Private Message or a Text Message To CONFIRM and COMPLETE your registration.
Cornelia and I are inviting you, on June 16th (2 PM to 4 PM), to help provide a much-needed shopping trip along with great companionship, lively talk and needed sunshine to seniors.

Volunteers will help transport seniors to the 99 Cent store by pushing them in wheelchairs approximately eight blocks round trip. Volunteers must be physically able to push people in wheelchairs.

This activity is organized in partnership with LA Works and Alexandria Care Center. Alexandria Care Center is a skilled nursing facility.

Volunteer Project: The elderly clients at Alexandria Care Center don't always have the chance to get out of their rooms very much. To boost their spirits and get some fresh air, they're offered a weekend excursion to the neighborhood 99 Cent Store! Shopping for great deals is one of their monthly highlights!

Bilingual (Spanish, Armenian, Korean, or Tagalog & English) skills are helpful.

Volunteer registration will begin at 1:55 PM. Please arrive by 1:50 PM so we can regroup before check-in. We must leave the facility at 2:10 PM prompt.

Please do us a favor and sign up if you are 100% sure to participate in this activity to make the coordination smooth. The seniors are expecting us. In addition to signing up here please also send me a private message with your phone number. We want to make sure we all meet up.

We look forward to meeting you at Alexandria Care Center on June 16th at 1:50 PM.

Together we make a difference!
Cornelia & Jean-Marc
