Hello from from 826michigan! We hope you are enjoying the beauties of May! We also hope you are ready to SPRING into action (get it?)!
Here at 826, we’re enjoying a very full schedule of programs between now and the end of the school year in mid-June. We are making a special ask for your help in supporting our programs because we are long on programs and short on volunteers in the next few weeks.
Here’s what we’re hoping: that you or someone you recommend can join us to help in programs in the coming weeks.
To help inspire you and your friends who you think may be interested in joining us, you can watch this 826michigan Volunteer Video (created by the fabulous Academic Service-Learning volunteer Flick Cain!).
To FURTHER inspire you, we have a few incentives this month:
RECRUIT A FRIEND to 826michigan in May
- Recruit one friend and receive FIVE free student illustrated writing postcards
- Recruit three friends and receive a limited edition 826michigan Volunteer Tote Bag
SIGNED DAVE EGGERS BOOKS for Program Volunteer Hours
