On Saturday, April 20, 2019, the American Red Cross, Send Relief and Graffiti Community Ministries have joined with local fire departments to reduce deaths through home fires by installing working smoke alarms. You and your group can become a partner in this effort as you demonstrate Jesus’ love and concern in a door-to-door campaign.
The gathering will be at Graffiti 2 Baptist Church, 606 East 141st Street, Bronx, New York, 10454, website, www.graffiti2ministries.org., beginning at 8:00a.m. Registration is by individual. If you have any questions you can email Andrew Mann at email@example.com. Breakfast and snacks will be provided, full schedule listed below.

Age limit to register is 16 years and above. This is for the security and safety of the volunteer. This age would be teamed with adults to go in to homes for smoke detector installation. Teams will be 3-4 persons with a lead and each person will be assigned a role at the orientation prior to going out into the community.
Are you available to help with the pre-canvassing event on Saturday, April 13, 2019? This will be knocking on doors in the communities the smoke detectors will be installed the next week, making appointments with homeowners prior to the April 20th event. If a homeowner is not home, you will have a door hanger with the information they can use to make an appointment the next week. Time for this event is 10:00 AM-2:00 PM. Please email Andrew Mann firstname.lastname@example.org if available.
We hope you will come and be a part of this event of saving lives both physically and eternally and discover how you can replicate this event in your local community or perhaps discover what your next missional step might be. The registration deadline is Wednesday, April 10th.
