Our next mission is Project Homeless Connect. It's a tradefair for those at risk of or experiencing homelessness in Calgary.

Attendees can also get haircuts, comfort kits (toiletries, socks, mitts and toques), clothing and a nutritious, hot lunch.

The Do Crew will be lending a hand making sure everyone gets fed. I'm looking for 15 people to join me on Saturday April 21st from 11am - 2:30ish. We're on lunch duty.

Here's the job description:
