Over the last couple months, many of you have kept up with and volunteered your time and resources to our newest community connecting point, Open Doors. Each Thursday from from 3 – 7 p.m., we’ve opened our doors to our homeless friends and offered a space for laundry, showers, food and drinks and just a place to take a load off. In a very short amount of time, we’ve made quite a few new friends and have had the opportunity to share in the lives of the Little Rock homeless community.
Now, we’ve been presented with a new opportunity with Open Doors. Little Rock Tweetup is a community of Little Rock Twitter users that meet monthly for a time of socializing and real life interaction. In an attempt to give back to the community, they’ve approached us about having their November tweetup at our building in order to have a potluck that raises awareness and support for our friend Aaron Reddin and, specifically, the community outreach he leads, The Van.
On Thursday, November 17 at 5:30—as an extension of Open Doors (which will already be taking place)—everyone’s invited to our building for a Mexican-themed potluck dinner. Greg Henderson has posted some details on the Little Rock Tweetup site and he’s is asking that people come with a potluck dish and/or a donation for The Van. If you’d like to know the needs of The Van, here’s a list that is updated by Aaron.
This should be a good time and a great opportunity to give back to our community. If you have any questions, please feel free to leave a comment or contact the organizers of the Little Rock Tweetup by clicking here.
See you all on the 17th!
