Our First Charity outing as a club is this weekend. 3pm Saturday, 15th December, 2007
Based on the votes of the members, we have decided to add value to 4 Cases this week. Two of these cases are critical public health cases that we can donate money to without any major paraphernalia. Some of our delegates will go ahead and do this ahead of us.
The rest of us will be going to two places on Saturday. Remand Home Boys Oregun and Modupe Cole, Okota. We’ll be giving them some of the items they have requested for as needs, spend some time with them and help them refurbish some of their dilapidated structures. In Modupe Cole we’ll be helping them to build a shed, as some of the workshop exercises they have are being done in the sun. In the Remand Home, we will confirm with them today whether it is renovation of one of their hostels that is urgent or helping them with an internet ready computer room.
We will be having coverage for the event from 12 Newspaper houses and 3 Television houses. The News Agency of Nigeria that supplies news for international stations will also be present. Like we confirmed to our members, we want to add visible value.
1. All members will need to go to their members’ area and click on the events link and chose to join to be a part of this event. This will help us know how many people to prepare for.
2. We will be renting a bus or buses depending on our numbers. This bus will convey us from 71 Allen Avenue, beside UBA to our destinations. We will depart from this venue at 3pm New Nigeria Time.
3. All interested members should dress in casual ware with a New Nigeria T-Shirt. If you don’t have one, there will be some available for sale at departure.
4. We will be taking some carpenters; painters and other specialists along, these ones will lead the refurbishing projects and will continue after we are gone.
Don’t just wait to hear about how this went, be a part of it. This is one of the things the New Nigeria is about… working together to make the lives of others better.
This is the best way to start!
