Greetings AOK Volunteers!
We are planning a large scale volunteer day and need your support!
June 13th 9:00am – 5:00pm (Come and go as you please, no need to be there the whole day.)
Cogar, OK (35.3342131,-98.1309195)
***Parking will be at Fletcher’s Cogar Store, Directly across the street.
PLEASE RSVP by responding to the message.
There are many activities to participate in:
– Painting the WS Kelly sign
– Lawn care
– Power washing the exterior
– Clean up inside the store.
– Possibly more
This store has been unused since the 1980’s. There is lots of dust, trash, treasures, and whatever found itself in there over the years. A dust mask is recommended.
Any tools, ladders and pick-up truck are welcome. We will be bringing a lot of the items, but if you have some cleaning supplies, brooms, etc, the more we can accomplish!
We will be providing water. It is advised that you bring a sack lunch. The nearest town is about 20 minutes away.
T Shirts will be available with a donation of your choice. All proceeds will be used towards materials we will need for future events and clean ups.
