EVENT DESCRIPTION: Assisting with recovery efforts following Hurricane Joaquin, which flooded 36 of South Carolina’s 46 counties, One Brick will be volunteering with SBP - our non-profit partner headquartered in New Orleans. Lodging is in a Day’s Inn, minutes from downtown Columbia and equally close to the worksites. The $170 fee includes lodging from Thursday, November 30 to Sunday, December 3, in a double queen bed room with breakfast included. As only a limited number of spots are available we recommend purchasing your trip ticket right away! Please only buy your airline ticket once the trip is confirmed with the minimum volunteer count. Trip ticket is non-refundable. However if the trip does not fill the minimum volunteer count and One Brick must cancel the trip all trip tickets will be reimbursed.  No refunds will be made for cancelations made less than 30days before the trip as this does not give us sufficient time to find a replacement volunteer. If you have any questions simply send details send Joe an email (josephd at onebrick.org). Can't make it this trip, but want to help out anyway? Sponsor a volunteer by donating to our scholarship fund (above link) or make a donation of any amount to SBP. WHAT WE'LL BE DOING: We won't know specifically what we will be working on until we arrive. However, no building experience is necessary, as there will be on-site training and supervisors there to help guide us.   On your first day, you will receive your assigned task on the project home, and be trained for that task. We ask that you please continue working at the same home until that stage of the project is completed. This ensures forward progress on the home without re-training volunteers daily. Typical tasks include: hanging drywall, installing flooring, painting trimwork, and mold remediation.  We may also be asked to help on gutting flooded homes. Works day starts approx. 8:30a.m. to about 4:30 p.m. *NOTE: the workday on Sunday will be shortened to 12:30 – 1:00 p.m. to account for return travel Sunday evening.

Are you new to the Columbia area (within the last 12 months or so)? If so, then this event is just for you! Moving to a new city is hard to say the least. Aside from adjusting to a new normal, you also have to figure out how to navigate around town, where the best restaurants are (for date night and for the kids), what preschool to enroll your little one in, who is going to be responsible for capturing the perfect family photos, which doctors you should visit, and so on and so on.  When you are suddenly on your own in a sea of new experiences and people, you remember simple kindnesses and conversations that acclimated you with the local culture. Those moments at the park when another mom was willing to share her favorite playgrounds and where she gets her hair cut. That time at the grocery store standing in line when another mom told you where to buy the freshest produce and about the place her daughter takes gymnastics and absolutely loves – all of those conversations were SO helpful in adjusting to this city. And we want to provide a similar experience for you at our Milkshakes, Munchies & Mingle Event geared specifically towards new moms to the Columbia area! We've teamed up with our friends and sponsors at PDQ to provide an opportunity for you to connect with other moms to help answer all your questions about what you need to know about the Capital City to help make your transition smoother. The Details  Who :: New(ish) to the Columbia Area (within the last 12 months) When :: September 30, 2017 | 2 - 3:30 p.m. Where :: PDQ, 4456 Devine Street, Columbia, SC 29205 What :: Milkshakes, Menu Samplings, Optional Kitchen Tour, Swag Bag Full of Goodies, Conversation and Connections Cost :: $10 More About PDQ People Dedicated to Quality – that’s what PDQ stands for. Fresh, never frozen, hand-breaded chicken tenders, made-to-order sandwiches, hand-tossed salads, fries, hand-spun shakes and more! No added steroids. No added hormones. No nonsense. Just delicious food that makes you feel good. PDQ was founded on a concept that high-quality food, memorable service and genuine hospitality are the basis of an excellent restaurant, and that’s just what they provide.  Disclaimers: ALL TICKET SALES ARE FINAL. NO REFUNDS. NO RAIN CHECKS. THIS EVENT WILL HAPPEN RAIN OR SHINE. In the event that you cannot attend the event we will do our best to assist you in finding another mom to exchange/give/or sell your ticket if the need arises and/or if time allows. Additionally, everyone that purchases a ticket will be subscribed to our email list (if they have not been already) in order to provide the most timely and up to date event info. Photos will be taken at the event and of attendees for use on the blog and on social media by the Columbia SC Moms Blog and sponsors. If for any reason you would not like photos of yourself taken please immediately notify Columbia SC Moms Blog personnel or email [email protected] in advance.
