HomeTask Cares Foundation Helping New Futures this Friday, Aug. 24
Burien’s HomeTask Cares Foundation, along with around 20 of their Franchise Partners from around the country, will be joining together to help local non-profit New Futures move into a new building located at the Woodridge Park Apartments this Friday, August 24th, from 1 p.m. – 4 p.m.
New Futures is currently operating out of three apartment buildings within the complex, but King County Housing recently built them a brand new facility on-site.
“We will be moving furniture from their current offices to their new building, assembling new furniture, as well as hauling away old furniture to Goodwill,” said HomeTask Founder Jerrod Sessler. “Kids and families from the complex are being invited to help us as well as we really want them to have ownership of their new space. It will be a great opportunity for us to support a great local non-profit and get involved with what is happening in our community.”
The HomeTask 2012 Convention is also taking place this weekend, from Aug. 24 – 27.
“We have invited 165 Franchised Location Owners to join us for a weekend of training, development, and getting to know one another,” Sessler added.
The bulk of the convention will be taking place at Cedarbrook Lodge in SeaTac, but they’ll also be hosting meals and socials at the HomeTask Support Center in Downtown Burien (611 SW 152nd St. Burien, WA 98166).
They’ll also have numerous guest speakers coming out for the weekend including Steve Baxter, Chris Inverso, and Bob Ingram.
‘SHRED DAY’ COMING IN SEPTEMBER
HomeTask is also planning on hosting a ‘Shred Day’ for the community in September.
“We are planning to have a week-long period during which businesses and individuals can drop of boxes for shredding and then having a shred truck here for a 3-hour period on a weekday to do the actual shredding,” Sessler said. “We are asking for donations of $5-$10 per box which will go to local charities.”
As we get closer to the Shred Day, we’ll post more information.
