Please join us as we clean up the grounds of SAFE (Shelter and Family Empowerment) House. We will be pulling weeds, clearing outdoor areas and generally beautifying this space for the residents of SAFE House. This is an outdoor event. Please wear long sleeves, long pants and closed-toe shoes. Please bring gardening/work gloves and yard/gardening tools if you have them. Water and snacks will be provided. This is a family friendly project.
Note about location: The address of the shelter is not publicized. We will meet at the ABQ Involved office at 108 Wellesley DR SE at 8:45 am SHARP and head over to the project location together.
