A Win Win Win Opportunity

Three opportunities are now available to KCADP supporters to help themselves, help others and help build the Coalition. Click on ‘Continued’ to see other ways to help.

flea offOn the first weekend of December, our outreach coordinator, Shekinah Lavalle, is organizing a “yardsale” fundraiser at Flea Off Market in Louisville.  Flea Off Market is a locally run community flea market that is held in the parking lot of Fresh Start Grower’s Supply between Jefferson and Market Streets on Baxter Ave.  The Flea Off Market takes place the first weekend of every month.

If you are normal, you probably have something laying around your home that could be put to better use in someone else’s home. Shekinah wants to help you do that. Please call her at 502.636.1330 or email her if you’d like to donate items we can sell on the first weekend of December at the Flea Off Market. You win, the buyer wins, KCADP wins.

volunteerAnother way to have some fun is to help us out with some phone banking. This December, KCADP celebrates our 25th year of working to end the death penalty in Kentucky.  In order to raise funds for a strong push toward abolition in our state, we will be phone banking.  These calls will remind supporters of upcoming events and ask them to commit to supporting our work over the next year.

Before you panic and say, “Oh, I could never do that,” know that you are in good hands with Shekinah who will train folks first and provide them with a great set of talking points.

You don’t need to live in Louisville to do this. You just need a phone. Call Shekinah at 502.636.1330 or email her.
