Please join SBA as we sit and have lunch with some of the youths at the Cook County Juvenile Temporary Detention Center (JTDC) on Saturday, November 23, 2019! Adopt-A-Pod will be hosted from 11:15 am – 2:00 pm. The premise for this program is to create a sense of “family” during this time of their life by allowing community providers (us) to connect with the JTDC youth by sharing a meal together. By sharing a meal, the providers will fill a void this time of year when family and loved ones are absent from the lives of these youth. Please sign-up using the following link: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1mgtlTXWLtHtT_TrpMDWoNgMqCxy4t5XkeHySrKaMklQ/edit?usp=sharing
Last year, BLSA volunteers said that the event was very eye-opening. We are hoping that many of you take advantage of this opportunity and understand how much of an impact you might have on one of the JTDC residents. If interested, please provide your information in the google doc sign-up by Wednesday, November 20.
If you have any questions, please email Cristina McNeiley at firstname.lastname@example.org. SBA will be providing food and drinks for volunteers and residents. If you have any food allergies or food restrictions, please email Cristina as soon as possible.
