Message from Lien Doan: 

From: Jadzia Nguyen-Khoa <jnguyenkhoa22@gmail.com>

Hello,

My name is Jadzia and I am the Homeless Projects Coordinator for SAP-VN. I got your contact information from Hieu Tran.

I am writing to ask if any or if several of the scout groups (aged 13+) would be interested in a group community service event during this holiday season. I was informed that you will be breaking for the year in December, but I wanted to share this opportunity anyway.

The OC Toy Collaborative helps makes the holiday season a little more joyful for children of homeless and low-income families. We can help by working in their warehouse to unpack, sort, and package toys. 

Here are some possible shift availabilities:

Wednesday, November 21st 8:00AM-11:30AM (14 spots)

Wednesday, November 21st 12:00PM-3:30PM (10 spots)

Saturday, December 29th 8:00AM-11:30AM (15 spots)

Saturday, December 29th 12:00PM-3:30PM (10 spots)

Volunteers must be 13 years or older and there needs to be at least one adult over 21 for every 5 kids. 

The location would be: 8018 Marine Way, Irvine, CA 92618 (about 15 minutes from Plaza Park)

The numbers of spots are the maximum I can offer. If there are individuals, parents or smaller groups that are interested, I'd be happy to work with them separately. 

Please let me know if any groups are interested. I was a Girl Scout for Lien Doan Chi Lang and Quan Trung Ngoc Hoi in the past and would love to work with scouts again.

Thank you,

Jadzia Nguyen-Khoa
