Young Professionals Group (YPG) is hosting our 1st community impact event called Second Chance Saturday 02/10/18!  Last summer, a few BOMA members met with Lincoln Property Company to join forces with ReKindle and it was such a huge success that YPG wanted to bring it to the membership to to get involved once more!  You do not need to be a BOMA member to join.  The more the merrier!

Second Chance Saturday is ReKindle's opportunity to get friends, family, and the community involved by uniting everyone to come out to spread love and kindness while providing basic needs for the homeless.  Let’s help our homeless neighbors get back on their feet by coming together and pooling our resources in a collaborative effort.  When we all get together, we can do greater things.

Our homeless neighbors will be in an organized line as they pick through items provided on tables we set up.  Anything you can supply is appreciated.  There will be a backpack station, a free street store, a story donation station and a hydration station.  Feel free to share the flyer attached as we would love for you, your family, church, charity or your company to come on down and join us!  We are also looking for people with medical experience to help administer first aid, people to come out and cut hair, or any other services you would like to provide.  The idea is to spread love, kindness and make connections.  Music is playing, people even dance and sing, whatever they can do to inject positive energy!

Donations are being collected at the property management office at 11 West Jefferson St. Suite 100 Phoenix, AZ 85003 from now until 02/09/18.  Please feel free to invite anyone you’d like.
