Martin Luther King Jr. National Day of Volunteering – Come on By!

Sue Rock Originals Everyone – the Brooklyn based textile charity which supports domestic violence survivors is doing it again.
Come out and put your hands to good use!

We are using volunteers on Martin Luther King Jr. Day in the following THREE WAYS:

1.  FLYER DISTRIBUTION – Don’t want to be cooped up inside during this fabulous weather we have been having?  Well we need volunteers to assist us in getting the word out about our organization.  Volunteers will work in groups and with our information flyers go throughout our neighborhood to distribute flyers at homes, stores, restaurants and businesses.

Hours – 12:00 – 6:00pm
Time requirement – 1 — 2 hours total

2. SEWING FOR SURVIVORS – Want to try your hand at being creative?  SROE has an ongoing quilting program which provides quilt tops to New Yorks domestic violence residences.  We are looking for skilled textile workers for machine sewing, hand sewing, knitting and crocheting.

And if you’re not feeling crafty – Not to worry!  We need textile lovers for the following tasks (and there will be refreshments!):

Folding and sorting of fabric
Cutting of fabric into shapes for quilts
Organizing of the work flow.

Hours – Morning Shift: 12:00 – 3:00
                 Afternoon Shift: 3:15pm – 6:15pm

3.  MEDIA PEOPLE : – We always need extra eyes and ears on the ground – if you love being at events and documenting by either blogging or taking pictures we would love to have you!

Hours – 12:00 – 6:00pm
Time requirement – 1 — 2 hours total
