When does a pallet, a tarp, rope and binder clips equal 75? When you are putting them together to create a shelter at our AMAZING QUEST!
That is just one of the activities that folks can participate in at our first AMAZING QUEST to Understand Homelessness. This brand new community event is designed to educate the community and raise funds to fight homelessness. While you will not only be earning points for a chance at some terrific prizes, you will be learning about the issue of homelessness that affects thousands of people in our community.
AMAZING QUEST will take place on Saturday, October 7, beginning and ending at People’s Park in Tacoma and teams will visit various landmarks around the Hilltop neighborhood to play, learn, and win points. You may even encounter other places and people to gather extra points!
We are excited about this event and welcome all faith communities, businesses, service clubs and other organizations to sign up, as well as share about this fun event. How can you help?
Ask your staff to form one or more teams of 2-8 people and show up to demonstrate your concern about homelessness in Pierce County. This is a great way to show your support for those in need and interact with other participants and leaders, and a fun team-building activity.
Hang posters on bulletin boards, distribute flyers on counters and in break rooms, and post flyers in your window to encourage participation in this unique event.
Encourage your workplace team to collect pledges from family and friends; your business, faith community or organization could also make a donation to support the team and/or the event itself.
Consider being an official event sponsor, aligning your business with a compelling cause and showcasing your services before hundreds of participants.
Be a volunteer and help make this fun event be the happening place! Volunteer as young as 15 are needed for a variety of tasks.
So join us for a day of fun, music, food and being part of a community who cares. Check out our website at associatedministries.org/amazing-quest to learn more and sign up!
