CARV Service Project - Repair AffairCARV is partnering with People Working Cooperatively in a service project called Repair Affair. This is is a volunteer event that combines the efforts of thousands of volunteers throughout the Tri-State to provide fall clean-up and winter preparation services for low-income, elderly and/or disabled homeowners. It will take place on Saturday, November 15 from 9:00 am til 12:00 pm, with the staging area at the Northern Hills UU church in Springfield Township, 460 Fleming Rd, which can be accessed from Springfield Pike or Winton Rd.
Our team leader is Richard Thornton (RPCV Afghanistan). People participating will need to bring gloves, rakes, and other lawn cleaning supplies. Bags will be provided by PWC. PWC also provides a lunch afterwards. Each team will be given five houses to assist and the homeowners will be contacted in advance to let them know we are coming. Click on the button at the bottom of the page for more information.
Interested? Register at https://forms.pwchomerepairs.org/prepare and select Richard Thornton as your team leader. He will be in touch by email before the event.
You Can Help Peace Corps Recruiting EffortsLocal Peace Corps Recruiter, Katie Sylvester, shares the following information about fall recruitment events:
This is a thrilling time for Peace Corps with our new application process and the ability for applicants to choose where they would like to apply. We are seeing an all-time high of applications since 2002 (16,000 so far this FY!) and I would love to keep that momentum going! I wanted to send along dates for recruitment events in the area. I would love as much RPCV presence as possible- if anyone is interested, they can contact me at email@example.com
