2015 Winter Blast
Winter Blast in Downtown Detroit at Campus Martius is quickly approaching and once again Matrix is proud to be selected as the charity of choice. Donated books, canned goods and monetary donations collected at the entrance gates will help to support Matrix programming, re-stock our emergency food pantry and ultimately be distributed to our clients and their families across the city of Detroit.
We need volunteers for all shifts.
On each shift 3 volunteers will be stationed at each of the 5 entrance gates and asked to collect donated books and canned goods and distribute Winter Blast entrance wrist bands. Cash donations will be collected by the Winter Blast security staff.
This year we have been asked to get volunteers for a 3 hour late shift. Food will be available to those who work the 3 hour last shift of the day. Free parking for volunteers is available in the Compuware garage adjacent to Campus Martius. Volunteers will be working outdoors, however, a heated tent will be at each entrance for periodic warm ups
The following schedule is available for sign up at SignUpGenius. We encourage you to share this information with friends, family, your group or the organization or company you work with to help us get these shifts staffed.
