As you probably know, for every Swig n' Swine party that happens, there is always an associated volunteer day where a group of volunteers meet at the local charter school or youth organization we've selected as the recipient of the event's fundraising, and work for them on whatever they need for a day. It's an important part of the equation for this event as we like to be able to donate labor from our industry as well as the money raised through tickets, merch, and donations. The experience is always incredibly rewarding and makes the party that much more satisfying!
This year, we will be volunteering on Wednesday, November 30th from 10 AM - 4 PM at Overtown Youth Center in Miami. Please arrive by 9:30/9:45 AM so we can organize ourselves and hear some words about OYC from the Director.
We have not arranged any transportation so cabs or carpools will be your best bet.
The address of Overtown Youth Center is 450 NW 14th St, Miami, FL 33136. If you are driving, you can park in their parking lot.
To the best of your ability, please let us know as soon as you can as we will eventually be coordinating tasks, supplies, and lunch for the group. If you have friends or co-workers interested in volunteering, please pass this on so they can RSVP too. Be sure to fill out your information below so we can send out follow-up details as we get closer!
THIS IS IMPORTANT!! - We ask that this day not be about drinking. We ask that you not be bringing bottles of booze or cases of beer or minis. It is important to us that we act as ambassadors of our industry and not act unprofessionally.
