Volunteers needed: Lutheran Family Service/Benson Area Refugee Task Force (BART)

Dates: Shifts every Saturday from now until August

 

BART is helping refugees secure healthier housing by assisting refugees in one apartment complex that is infested with bed bugs. In order to accomplish this goal, we need volunteers to  help move furniture every Saturday from now until August at 8am-9am, 1pm-2pm, and 6pm – 7pm. The furniture will be moved to a heat garage where it will be treated and the bugs exterminated. The task may seem daunting because Bed Bugs hold such a stigma, but in reality several children and families are living in these infested apartments and desperately need our help.

If you have any questions, or are interested in volunteering,  please contact Shannon Linehan (AmericCorps member) at 703 . 244 . 1143 or bensonrefugeetf @ gmail.com
