Hey Detroit friends! Oxfam is looking for volunteers at the Coldplay concert in Auburn Hills on 8/3 at the Palace of Auburn Hills to help get the word out about our Stand As One campaign, in solidarity with refugees and people forced to flee their homes.
You'd be interacting with music fans as they enter the arena up until Coldplay comes on, then you'll get to see Coldplay's set for free!
For more info and to sign-up for consideration, please visit www.oxfamamerica.org/coldplay

A Court Appointed Special Advocate (or CASA) is a trained, dedicated and caring community volunteer, who has the opportunity to broadly influence the life of a foster child by advocating across many important life issues, including permanent placement, health care, education, and enrichment activities. Many more children can thrive with the intensive intervention of a CASA volunteer, and this is how you can help.
The first step toward becoming a Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) is attending an information session. Join us for an hour to learn how you can make a much needed difference in the life of a foster child. No specific education background is necessary, as we offer a comprehensive training course for all potential advocates before they are paired with children.
For more information, or to RSVP for this or a different information session, please visit: http://casala.org/volunteer/. We look forward to sharing more information about the work of CASAs at the information session!
