Community Outreach Event

 

The Sojourner Center and the ASIS Phoenix Chapter have been long time community partners and the center is one of the beneficiaries of the Chapter’s annual golf outing. Sojourner is one of the largest domestic violence shelters in the United States. They provide secure shelter along with a multitude of services to women, children and their pets who are victims of domestic violence.

 

On May 19th and 20th the ASIS Phoenix Chapter again traveled to the Sojourner Center to lend a helping hand. These were the second and third volunteer days that the chapter has organized this year at the center. The chapter has organized a total of five volunteer days in the last twelve months and members have also donated significant amounts of security equipment. On Friday May 19th members of the chapter reported to Volunteer Programs Manager Leslie Moore for assignment. The group was given the task of prepping and priming a class room for painting. Those on hand included Rich Wilson, Amy Naccari, Tempe Miller and Steve Norris.

 

On Saturday, May 20th members of the chapter returned to the center to complete painting the class room that was prepped the previous day. Other chapter members were assigned to deep clean and sanitized class rooms and activity areas. Among those present were Jeff Varda, Terry Donnelly, Jordan Cote, Jeanette Guerra, Sam Fullam, Cathy Nelson and Steve Norris. Nearly every chapter member brought either family or co-workers to assist in the effort.

 

The Community Outreach Committee would like to thank all of those who volunteered to assist the Sojourner Center. Over 60 hours of time was spent by chapter members and their associates in helping the center that weekend.
