Talking About Lacrosse Principles and Gear

Welcome to my site. My name is Bennett McCavanaugh. I would like to talk to you about the exciting sport of lacrosse. When I first picked up my lacrosse gear, I was confused about how the game would work. In particular, I was unsure about what my role on the field would be exactly. Luckily, I was able to watch a few games and see how the players interacted. My coach also helped us learn about our roles on the field. I would like to use this site to talk about the different ways lacrosse players use the field and their gear. Please visit often to learn all you can about this fun sport.

Want To Help Adults At Your Local Shelters Get Employment? Transportation Drives That Pay Off

by Julia Hart

Would you like to help the local shelters in your areas with their determination to help adults in your area find jobs? If so, providing ways for the adults to get to work when they get a job that isn't within walking distance of the shelter or their housing is ideal. It can be hard to find reliable transportation if you can't afford your own vehicle and giving the adults a way to get to work is giving them another chance to succeed. Here are a few things to consider.

Raise Money for Bus Passes

You can collect money, have fundraisers and ask for bus pass donations to get busing passes for the adults that can use the bus system as a form of transportation. This is ideal when the weather is cold, and when they have to travel long distances at night and can't walk. There are some passes that have a specific amount of days they can be used, other cards that have money loaded on them like an account, and unlimited access cards.

Do a Used Bicycle Donation Drive

You can have a used bicycle donation drive, where people in your area bring in their bikes that are used, even if they need repairs. Evaluate the bikes to see which models need work. You can pay to have the bikes repaired at a local bike shop out of your pocket, or do a fundraiser to pay to have the bikes repaired. With the repaired and tuned-up bikes, the adults can maintain their health and get to their new place of employment at the same time. Giving bike locks with the bikes may also be a fundraising goal.

Taxi Money

If there are local taxi companies in the area that are willing to cooperate, you can purchase rides for anywhere in the city. Pay for the booklets of coupons for the adults that are in the program to use. They will give the cab driver their coupon when they reach their destination and it's time to pay. Since you're buying booklets and rides in advance, the taxi company may be able to work out a deal with you.

These are just a few of the ways that you can raise money and help the adults in your area who are trying to get a new start, get to where they need to begin their new journey. Make a committee and start working with the local charities and shelters to make it happen.
