Sun August 27 at 9:00 AM, Kells Park
Kells Playground Park, 3201 W Chicago Ave, Chicago, IL, USA (Map & Directions)
Let's get together and help out the BarberQue folks throw a great event feeding, clothing, and giving haircuts to people who need them.
What's this? details from them: "The mission of the BarberQue project is to provide resources to a marginalized and often alienated group of people, create awareness around the issue of homelessness in Chicago, and build a community of acceptance and support.

On Sunday August 27th a free BarberQue will be held at Kells Park. Participants will receive a free meal, haircut, clothing, and many other social services."

You have to sign up here. I'm going to try to volunteer 9am - 1pm but you do you.

The specifics are still a little vague, but they need volunteers to help setup and cook and generally help, and I think we can do those things.

This meetup date is set for July 21 but looks like you want it to be August 27? Calendars are hard.

I've had to back out of this because of the sink situation and the crazy amount of commitments I have between now and mid-September. :(

I also had to back out and I wish I'd announced it sooner so I wasn't the second one today.

I'll be there the full day.
