SUBJECT: VOLUNTEER FOR PLAID FRIDAY, NOV 29
DATE: November 4, 2013 2:05:09 PM PST
Hi Oakland Grown Street Team members!
We need your help with our annual Plaid Friday event! See details
below and hope to see you there! And as always, let me know if you
have any questions.
WHAT: Plaid Friday
WHERE: Downtown Oakland, CA
WHEN: Friday, November 29, times vary
WHO: Oakland Grown, East Bay Express, the Downtown/Uptown business
districts, In the Black, Oaklandish and many others
WHY: The name Plaid Friday was conceived from the idea of weaving the
individual threads of small businesses together to create a strong
fabric that celebrates the diversity and creativity of independent
businesses. Plaid Friday is the fun and enjoyable alternative to the
big box store “Black Friday,” and is designed promote both local
and independently owned businesses during the holidays.
WHAT WE ARE ASKING FOR HELP WITH:
We need about 40 volunteers to help out over the course of the day,
the following shifts
12:00 - 4:00
3:30 - 7:30
5:00-9:00 (in one of the bars, 21+ only)
Roles include setting up, serving hot chocolate, helping with Santa
and Mayor's Toy Drive, monitoring the info booth, swiping people's
Oakland Grown Cards at participating bars, and a few other tasks.
This is all to support our local small businesses, and in turn, our
local community, as local businesses provide more jobs and more
charitable donations, and generally do so much more for our
communities than big box stores.
I hope you will consider helping out for a few hours!
If so, please take a minute to complete this form  to let us know
your availability. (Link: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/TF8VZVL
