Description

The Salvation Army STOP-IT Program needs your help.

In order to raise awareness among key first responders, people who may engage with survivors, and the general public, the STOP-IT Program invites you to join us on two awareness material distribution days. On September 17 and 18, 2019, program staff invites you to help us distribute direct outreach materials, flyers, palm cards, posters and stickers to relevant agencies, organizations and community centers. Our hope is to get the word out about human trafficking so that survivors have better access to the resources they need. Will you join us?

Please note: This event is for volunteers aged 18 and older or youth 15 and up if participating with parents. Volunteers can sign up for one of four time slots, depending on availability: 1) September 17, 2019 from 9 am to 12 pm; 2) September 17, 2019 from 1 to 4 pm; 3) September 18, 2019 from 9 am to 12 pm; and September 18, 2019 from 1 to 4 pm.

Logistics for volunteers:

1) Volunteers will start the day off at 4800 N Marine Drive to get their assignments - each volunteer should then expect to go from there to several agencies to drop off materials during their shift.
2) Volunteers will be assigned locations based on where they said they live and general proximity to where they live (as much as is possible)
3) Volunteers with cars who say they are able to travel longer distances will be assigned accordingly if necessary.
4) Volunteers will be expected to fill out a form documenting if any agencies were not responsive or open and/or if they were unable to drop off materials by the end of their shift.
5) Volunteers are not expected to come back to the meeting spot at the end of the day - you are free for the day after you have dropped off your last materials!
