Law Enforcement Encouragement Project - DONATION DROP OFF (MORNING)

OCT
1
Date & Time:

Saturday, October 1, 2022
9:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Volunteers:

40 have signed up & 10 openings remain.

Description:

What to expect:  Volunteers will be dropping off goodie bags and notes to employees of the El Paso County Jail. There are 430 employees at the El Paso County jail who work difficult and thankless jobs. They would love to feel encouraged and seen by the community at large! This project IS NOT a physical service project, but a simple donation drop off to demonstrate care to the staff at the El Paso County Jail. 

Volunteer Tasks: We are asking each volunteer that signs up for this project to bring AT LEAST 15 pre-prepared goodie bags (including 2-5 small items/snacks in each) and 15 cards of encouragement to the El Paso County Jail and drop them off for staff. If each volunteer that signs up brings 15 cards/goodie bags, every staff member will receive something and maybe a few things. We will not be dictating what you need to bring, but trust each volunteer to be creative and encouraging! This would be a great project for a family! 

Donation Item Ideas:

-Cards of Encouragement - Messages like "You are valued!" or "Thank you for all you do!" - Please put notes of encouragement with whatever items you choose to bring.

- Food items: Small packaged snacks or drinks (gatorade, water, granola bars, individually wrapped cookies or chips, etc.)

- Acceptable larger items: Trays of Jimmy Johns/Subway/Costco, trays of cookies or pastries

- Acceptable smaller items: Chapstick, gift cards, etc.

- Items that are NOT allowed: any glass, tin or metal of any kind 

Drop of Details: Please simply park in the front parking lot and take your items to the front desk. Please advise the front desk staff that you are there to drop off the donated items for staff. Must drop off between 9am - 12pm on Saturday, Oct 1st.
