Fred Korematsu Volunteering Friday May 21st!

Hello everyone!

Hope you are all doing well today. This Friday, May 21st from 3:30 – 8 PM, AAA has a community service opportunity at Fred Korematsu Elementary School in Davis. 4. Fred Korematsu is located at 3100 Loyola Drive, Davis CA. The school is celebrating their annual Asian Pacific Islander Celebration!

Here is a link to the sign up spreadsheet https://spreadsheets.google.com/ccc?key=0AkJvb-84mWSCdGFmQkdDVGhqbEJPMnE4MVlIRGtaTFE&hl=en

We are asking if you can volunteer an hour of your time on Friday. There are 4 different shifts that you can attend. If you have a car and drive other volunteers that would be great!

Volunteers will be helping with the set up, game booth management and clean up. Although I did say there would be food for volunteers, the organizer updated me and said that the committee is having some issues securing the food for everyone. The least they provide are drinks. Other than that, this is a great opportunity to give back to the Davis community.

Attendance will count towards your AAA membership!

IF you have any questions please feel free to contact me at bhlam@ucdavis.edu.
