We need volunteers! - The Capitol Hill Garage Sale and the Capitol Hill Pride Festival

As we may have mentioned before, June is going to be a very busy month for Unpaving Paradise. Last Sunday's Farmer's Market went wonderfully - the weather was nice, the volunteers hardworking (thanks Josh, Pinar, Micah, Becki and Thomas!), and the Capitol Hill Garage Sale flyers proved so popular we had to run down the street to make more! But we cannot yet rest on our laurels, because the Capitol Hill Garage Sale and the Capitol Hill Pride Festival are coming right up and we still need volunteers for both these events.

Unpaving Paradise will have a sale at the Pine and Belmont community space of the Capitol Hill Garage Sale next Saturday, June 13th. Because UP is a sponsor of the event, we hope to get enough volunteers to run our own sale and to help coordinate the CH Garage Sale as a whole. The sale will run from 10am to 4pm, but we'll need volunteers from about 9am to 5pm so we can do donation pickup, set up, take down and donation of unsold items as well. This event will be outside, but UP will have an canopy over our space.

Unpaving Paradise will also have a booth at the Capitol Hill Pride Festival on June 27th. The Festival will run from 11am to 4pm, but we will need volunteers from about 10:00am to 5:00pm so we can set up and take down the booth. Our presence at the Pride Festival will mostly be about outreach, but we also hope to be able to sell some rainbow bandanas as a fundraiser. This is also an outdoor event, and UP will have a canopy over our booth.

If you are interested in volunteering at either event, for any period of time, please email unpaving(dot)paradise(at)gmail(dot)com to sign up!
