Random Acts is pleased to announce our participation at the Salute to Supernatural convention in Arlington, Virginia May 2-4, 2014. Stop by our table for some cool activities, to meet up with fellow abnosome kindness actors, and some other fun stuff!
For this convention, Random Acts is partnering with SOME (So Others Might Eat), based in Washington, DC. An interfaith group, SOME offers a holistic, comprehensive set of services to the extremely poor in their area.
1,000 meals are served each day in SOME’s dining room and through other programs; the organization also offers comprehensive programs to meet the needs of the poor and homeless of the District of Columbia. These programs are three-fold: emergency, rebuilding, and stability, with the goal of moving the men, women and children served from needing emergency care to self-sufficiency.
How can you help? Convention attendees can bring all kinds of donations with them to be part of Random Acts’ efforts to help: SOME is looking for some specific items from Convention attendees:
- non-perishables (bulk & individual)
- nutrition bars
- pasta sauce
- macaroni & cheese
- cooking oil
- canned meat
- canned tuna
- canned soup
- canned vegetables
- peanut butter & jelly
- evaporated milk
- instant potatoes
- instant oatmeal
- salt & pepper
- ground coffee
At this Convention, there is an additional opportunity to expand your efforts to be kind! On Sunday, May 4th, 2014, Random Acts is inviting three lucky participants to Spread SOME Kindness with them. Chosen participants will have the opportunity to join Random Acts in volunteering at SOME, serving lunch to the homeless/very poor from approximately 10:30am-1:15pm as part of SOME’s daily food service.
If you’re interested in participating, please fill out the following entry form: https://podio.com/webforms/7713313/582855. Entries will be accepted until April 24th, 2014 at 23:59 EDT. Only one entry per person will be accepted. You do not have to be attending the Salute to Supernatural DC convention to be eligible to participate; however, you must be able to meet Random Acts at the convention hotel (DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel – Washington DC-Crystal City, 300 Army Navy Drive, Arlington, VA 22202) or at SOME (71 O Street, NW, Washington, DC 20001) at the meeting time specified by Random Acts.
