Description

Holiday BL²ENDer

in partnership with HQ

The holidays are right around the corner and we'd like to invite you to celebrate our last BL²ENDer and Community Outreach event of 2016 on Friday, December 9 at 6:00 p.m. We are excited to partner with HQ Runaway and Homeless Youth Drop-In Center who's mission is to create a safe and affirming space where youth can find rest, build connections, and realize their dreams.

HQ began as a collaborative effort in Grand Rapids. Since they opened their doors in December of 2014, HQ has: assisted youth in obtaining vital documents; helped them gain employment through education and training; provided meals to over 645+ members and so much more!

About 80% of HQ members are people of color and in an effort to help HQ further mission we're asking our participants to donate items on the HQ wishlist or give a monetary donation at the door. Be sure to also check out HQ's Amazon's Wishlist for items you can donate.

And since it's better to give than to receive, for every donated item you bring in, you'll receive a raffle ticket to win some great prizes! And... for every $10 you donate you'll receive two raffle tickets for more chances to win! In addition to learning about the volunteer/committee opportunities available at HQ, and what you can do to positively impact youth in our community, you'll enjoy the cool sounds of our special guest PJ DA DJ starting at 7:00 p.m.

Reign in the holidays with some great music, friends and helping a great cause!
