FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE July 3, 2008
The Alexandria Community Services Board is in need of volunteers to serve in the following positions:
Mural Artists: Alexandria Vocational Services is seeking a mural artist or group of artists to paint a portion of a 30’x 60’ concrete wall in a warehouse that houses the Sheltered Workshop Program. This program provides supported and supervised employment opportunities for persons with intellectual disabilities. Program participants complete projects such as labeling, envelope stuffing and film recycling. The goal is to make the site more welcoming and cheerful by adding a mural. Some funds are available for supplies.
By giving a small amount of time, volunteers can meet a tremendous need in the community. For more information about these volunteer opportunities, contact Jennifer Cohen Cordero at email@example.com or 703.838.4455, x 161.
