Another day, another volunteer opportunity with Settlement Home! As a reminder/general PSA: Renew has teamed up with a foster home called The Settlement Home. It’s an all-girls home where ages range from early middle school to late high school. A group of the girls come to the gym Tuesdays and Thursdays to workout and have a discussion time at the end. They’re very BA and way cooler than me. At Renew, we’re always looking for ways to not only strengthen our gym community, but also strengthen the Austin community as a whole. That’s why we looooove volunteer opportunities -- they lovingly tap two birds with one stone. If you’re on the prowl for some volunteer opportunities to join, check out the below! (ALERT: these are also great opps for friends and family to tag along to. Sharing is caring.) ______________________________________________________

Option 1: Gift giving to a specific girl (deadline to have them to the gym Dec. 14th)

We are sponsoring 3 of the girls who regularly come to the CrossFit program! Their names are Kaylea, Felicity, and Vicki. They are all incredible, and have caught on to CrossFit very quickly. They also all feel comfortable enough with me to be willing to share their life stories with me, and they deserve the whole darn world. Click here to see their wish lists and sign up to get one of the items! While Kaylea, Felicity, and Vicki take priority, there is also an Amazon wish list for girls that come to the Settlement Home around Christmas, and for various gift needs throughout the year. ______________________________________________________

Option 2: Holiday Program (10-15 volunteers needed)

Where: Settlement Home Campus When: Thursday, 12/14, 5:30pm-8:00pm What: Every year, they have a big event for the girls at the Settlement Home. If you were able to volunteer for Thanksgiving, it will be similar, but on a much larger scale! They will need people to help decorate, serve food, tear down, and anything else in between. I will be at this one, so you’ll have at least one familiar face! ______________________________________________________

Option 3: Gift Drop-off (Need 5 volunteers e/day)

Where: Settlement Home Campus When: Friday, 12/8 from 11:00am-2:00pm or Saturday, 12/16 9:00am-12:00pm What: This is an opportunity for you to be on campus to receive gifts from people as they are dropped off. People will be bringing things from the girls’ wish lists, as well as from the Amazon page. ______________________________________________________

Option 4: Gift Wrapping

Where: Settlement Home Campus When: Wed-Fri, 12/20-12/22 at 10am each day What: The staff have to approve each gift that comes in to make sure it’s appropriate to give to the girls. This means that everything comes to them unwrapped. If you have a special talent or love for gift wrapping (bless you), please put that talent to use and sign up to help the staff wrap everything for each of these ladies! ______________________________________________________ These girls are great, and can use all the lovin’ they can get. It would mean a lot to them to receive something from Renew, or see some of our faces during events. If you get a gift for one of the girls, please bring it (unwrapped) to the gym as soon as you can! I’m starting a pile on the desk to bring over! If interested, please email me at [email protected] Thanks y’all! McKenzie
