The signs will be ordered from Immanuel Mennonite Church in Harrisonburg, VA. The cost for the double sided sign in six languages (English, Spanish, French, Somali, Arabic and Hebrew) is $5 each (includes sign and metal lawn stake) with a minimum order of $200 or $1,000.
The signs purchased will be for houses of worship and public placement. If community members would like to print their own signs for their windows and places of business, they can do so from the Immanuel Mennonite Church website, http://immanuelmennonite.org.
If each member of HUBB can contribute between $50 and $100, we can easily get to $1,000. If we raise more, we will buy more signs. The deadline for contributions is ____. Checks can be made payable to Virginia Organizing (a 501c3??) and mailed to: _______. Please include name, phone number and email address with your check.
Contributors and donors will be notified of the arrival of the signs and asked to pick up from the Simon Family JCC (5000 Corporate Woods Drive, Virginia Beach, VA 23462) or ____________________ (in Norfolk). Advanced notice is required so the proper number of signs can be pulled and labeled for pick up. The number of signs one can pick up will depend on the number of locations they will be placed. We do ask that requests for signs include the placement locations (no need for addresses, only names. i.e. Simon Family JCC or Masjid William Salaam).
The idea is that the 200 signs hit the community in as wide a manner as possible, making an impact throughout the region.
