GL Day Ender: Obama Service Fair on Sunday

February 5th, 2009 · 1 Comment

There’s an event coming up this Sunday for those who are serious about trying to bring about change right here in Brooklyn. Here’s the email we just got:

Hundreds of Brooklynites who volunteered for Barack Obama’s presidential campaign will join together this Sunday, Feb. 8., to make sure change comes right to their own backyard. On Sunday, more than 65 local nonprofits, charities and advocacy groups will take part in the first-ever “Continue the Change Service Fair.” Organized by the grassroots group Brooklyn for Barack and the Central Brooklyn Independent Democrats, the volunteer fair will seek to harness the incredible energy sparked by the Obama campaign. From sewing new clothes for women at domestic violence shelters to stocking shelves at a local food bank, from mentoring a child to working with abused animals, the volunteer fair will provide former campaign volunteers with countless opportunities to make a positive difference close to home.

The Continue the Change Service Fair takes place on Sunday (2/8) from 2 to 6 p.m. at Union Temple, 17 Eastern Parkway (at Grand Army Plaza) 3rd Floor ballroom. The Temple’s food drive would appreciate it if people brought a box of dried pasta.
