APA Service Corps of OCA-NOVA and OCA-DC Community Outreach will participate in Greater DC Cares Annual Servathon on May 31, 2003. Servathon projects include renewing and landscaping low-income housing complexes, beautifying area parks, painting and refurbishing recreation centers, and much more! Don’t miss out on the fun! Serve the community, and party at Lulu’s after the event – FREE FOOD, DRINKS AND ENTERTAINMENT!
Since it is also a fundraiser, there is a minimum pledge of $20.00 per volunteer. These pledges ensure that your one day of service is transformed into a year’s worth of programming at Greater DC Cares. Ask friends or family to sponsor you, and double, triple or quadruple the impact of your Servathon effort.
Our goal is to recruit at least 25 volunteers!!! If you are interested in participating, please register by MAY 12, c.o.b. This year, you may register online by going to http://www.dc-cares.org/volunteers/special_days_of_service/servathon/Registration.aspx. Make sure that the Team Type says “Volunteer Initiated”; Team Name says “APA Service Corps & OCA-DC”; and Team Captain says “Jovanna Bello.” On the day of the event, don’t forget to bring your pledges in a sealed envelope and submit them to the designated registrar that morning.
The minimum age for participation is 14 years old. Participants between 14 and 17 years old must have a parent or guardian sign a parental consent form.
APA Service Corps is a program sponsored by the Organization of Chinese Americans-Northern Virginia Chapter. Its primary goals are to: 1) provide at least one community service opportunity each and every month for volunteers; 2) promote the involvement of Asian Pacific Americans in community service; and 3) enhance the perception of our community in mainstream America. APA Service Corps volunteers have been giving back to the community for over six years. This will be APA Service Corps’ 78th consecutive month of service.
The month of May marks the one-year anniversary of joint projects between APA Service Corps and OCA-DC Community Outreach. OCA-DC shares similar goals of serving the community.
