B-More Clean-a-Thon Competition & Fundraiser

LABOR DAY WEEKEND 2014

Join us in a Labor of Love: Clean up the streets of Baltimore City by picking up trash and simultaneously raising funds to support victims of human trafficking in our neighborhoods! Teams of 3-10 people will compete for the greatest amount of trash collected as well as the greatest amount of funds raised. Clean-up dates must be scheduled in advance (Friday 8/29 – Monday 9/1) and the collected trash will be weighed and recorded. Team members will raise funds by obtaining pledges to donate money per pound of trash collected (pledge amount not to exceed 100 lbs) – for example, a person who pledges 25 cents per pound will donate a maximum of $25. All funds must be collected and submitted to Safe House of Hope by September 30th. Award winners will be posted the first week of October.

This event is a great way for girl & boy scout troops, youth groups, fraternities & sororities, social clubs, athletic teams, and coworkers to come together and give back to the community in which they live, work, or play.

Volunteers Urgently Needed

One-on-One Client Advocates

Advocacy workers go with clients to any meeting or service the client is having difficulty navigating on her own, such as court or social services. An advocate always looks out for the client’s best interest and teaches the client how to stand up for herself. Advocates will also call and check in on clients and build relationships with them.

Next Advocate Training: Thursday, July 17th, 7pm – 9pm
