Saturday, March 19, SCWLA's Women's Shelter Refurbishment Project!

Good day, SCWLA,

Volunteers are needed to assist SCWLA and the SC Bar Young Lawyers Division’s Voices Against Violence as the two team up to refurbish the YWCA of the Upper Lowlands, a women’s shelter that was ravaged by the October flooding.

The project will take place on Saturday, March 19, from 9am- 12 noon.

If you are interested in volunteering as a SCWLA member, please email [email protected] by 2/24/16. Also, please include your fitted t-shirt size for your SCWLA service project shirt to be worn the day of the event. Shirts will be paid for upon arrival at the event. Exact cost is to be determined, but we expect the shirts to cost less than $20. We will also have male size options available as we encourage you to invite anyone willing to lend a helping hand!

If you would like to make a monetary donation in lieu of attending, please mail your contribution to SC Bar YLD, 950 Taylor St., Columbia, SC 29202. (Please write “VAV Refurbishment Project” on the “for” line on your check.)

Thank you in advance for your commitment to service and helping others! 

Allyce Bailey,

Community Ourtreach Committe Chair
