Service: Flying Signs for HRDC Warming Center - Sat., Sept. 10th, 9:15am - 2:30pm
This month our Rotaract club will be volunteering at HRDCs annual “Warming Center's Flying Signs Fundraiser!”. Volunteers are located in groups of 3-5 at designated corners around Bozeman while “flying” Warming Center signs and collecting donations to raise critical operating funds for the Warming Center.
There are two volunteer shift time slots available: 9:15-11:45 AM and 11:15 AM-2:30 PM. Sign-up for a shift at the following link: http://signup.com/go/x2QGf6
Let’s get out there, have some fun, and engage with donors! Costumes or a theme may be a nice way of gaining attention (Pokemon Go anyone??).
*Volunteers are to meet at 2104 Industrial Drive at the beginning of their shift to receive a brief 15 minute orientation. After the orientation is complete, volunteers will head to their designated corner.
The Warming Center is 100% funded by donations from the community. The Flying Signs event raises awareness to the issue of homelessness and is critical to ensuring that the Warming Center’s doors can open in October and remain that way through March. This year’s goal is to raise $15,000. http://www.thehrdc.org/how-we-help/housing/emergency-shelter/

Service: Fix-Up Festival- Sat., Oct. 1st If you haven't participated in Bozeman Fix-Up Festival (FUF) you don't want to miss it. FUF is one of Bozeman Sunrise Rotary Club's signature service projects. In the spirit of neighbors helping neighbors, the annual event brings the community together for one day each year to repair and rehabilitate the homes of low-income, elderly or disabled homeowners who are physically and financially unable to do the work alone. Homeowners receive labor and materials at no cost to them thanks to the contributions and support of the larger community, including individual donors and volunteers, service and community organizations, and local businesses. Stay tuned for details on volunteer shifts and tasks. http://www.fixupfestival.com
