1 – Computer Lab “proctors” needed at our BRAND NEW HOUSING building (4747 Table Mesa) for Ready to Work Trainees — we have a fully-stocked new computer lab at our brand new building and are looking for volunteers to be Computer Proctors for every time the lab is open for our Trainees. These volunteers do not need to be computer experts, they just need to help answer simple questions and make sure our guidelines are being adhered to. *What would be most helpful is for your group to “sponsor” one day a week to supply 1 – 2 volunteers to be proctors for that day* So, kind of like you sponsor one night a month to serve at Community Table, this would be 1 day/night a week to supply the proctors and you could rotate who in your congregation comes in to be the proctor each week. A training will be provided. Please let me know right away if you would like to consider this option and we can discuss it further…we’re trying to open our computer lab next week and need lots of volunteer support asap to make that happen!

2 – Toiletries needed at the Bridge House ASAP! We have been experiencing very high volume of clients these past couple of months at record numbers and we desperately need more small shampoos, soaps, razors, toothpaste, toothbrushes, feminine hygiene products, etc… Perhaps you have some of these at home from hotels? Or could ask neighbors and friends if they have some? This is an urgent need for us, so if you do have some available, please bring them to the Bridge House any Monday – Friday, 8am – 4pm (ring doorbell if it’s locked) – the sooner the better. The location is 1120 1/2 Pine St., which is on the alleyway running between Spruce & Pine going west from Broadway. Please e-mail me before you drop off just so that I can let them know it’s coming:Scott@BoulderBridgeHouse.org Thank you!
3 – On Oct. 19th – 23rd there will be a big push to connect homeless veterans with social services. If you would like to volunteer for the VOA during this initiative, they are looking for volunteers. Go to this link where you can sign up and request more information: http://www.voacolorado.org/
Thanks very much! We will have more special volunteer opportunities coming in regards to our new Ready to Work Housing at 4747 Table Mesa. This is a breakthrough step for us at Bridge House, where we are housing 48 people who are in our Ready to Work employment program…it is truly innovative and there will be various ways that volunteers can support later this fall. For now, the Computer Lab is the project we have in front of us and would love you to join us in that endeavor. Thank you!
Peace, Scott Medina, Volunteer Coordinator, Bridge House
