Day Without A Gay – Schedule

The volunteer opportunities will be staggered throughout the day, but the length of the entire day will be from 9am-10pm, see details below. All activities will be overlapping, so as long as you see something you’re interested in, hopefully offering your day to service will be worth it.

If you CAN NOT TAKE OFF WORK OR SKIP SCHOOL, come before or after. If you don’t want to donate the whole day – do what makes you feel comfortable.
