My first time working with OCG at it's Casting Call Atlantis Casino I enjoyed learning things.
I walked around my apartment complex that is majority student housing and put On Common Ground's promotional flyers in the apartment doors. I paired both a flyer for the casting calls, to be a part of the Fundraiser to fight food insecurity, and also the flyer of the time, date, and location of the actual fashion show event. Then I also went to the main office and got permission and put a stack of both flyers on their main desk for passerbys to look at and take. People are constantly at this desk for apartment questions and also all mail package pickup.
I had a great experience learning not just what OCG is all about, but about the issues our community faces that OCG hopes to solve.
I bake 50 chocolate peanut butter energy balls for the SNA booth at the event. Each goodie bag included one energy ball and the full recipe. I was Unable to actually attend the event, but more than happy to help by providing goodies. I met with Kelsie she was my contact for the event. Kelsie, said that the event had a great turnout and everyone loved the goodies!
