Youth Night - Hide, Seek N' Sort

Dear Parents and Guardians, Parkallen Social has had a great time hosting Youth Events these past few months. One thing we find beneficial to include in these events is volunteerism. One of the Parkallen Social Committee members, Jeremiah Basuric, works at The Mustard Seed, an organization serving persons experiencing poverty and homelessness in Edmonton. One of his roles includes hosting various volunteer groups of all ages at The Mustard Seed. The most common task for these volunteer groups is sorting clothing at The Mustard Seed Personal Assistance Centre (10568 - 114 Street NW). Parkallen Social invites youth to come help sort articles of clothing on Friday, March 31st from 7 pm - 9 pm. We hosted the same event last year and participants greatly enjoyed it. The Personal Assistance Centre is located in a safe area of town between Grant MacEwan and Oliver Square. During the time of sorting at the Personal Assistance Centre, only volunteers and youth from our Parkallen program will be present. The b ...
