POWER CHANGES LIVES INC. will host FREE statewide community assistance events in Trenton, Atlantic City and Newark, New Jersey to help those in need through its program LavaLove®, a 29-foot mobile hygiene shower trailer equipped with 3 shower-sink-toilets, washing machine/dryer, and an ancillary services room (medical, dental, optometry, and mental health screenings) that also serves as a barber/grooming room.
LavaLove® serves communities in need three days per week and provide over 8,000 showers per year. It addresses those who are water-insecure, and those food-insecure providing hot meals at the trailer site, and onsite access to medical providers, supporting its mission to provide access to clean, hot water and medical services beyond traditional shelter and hospital settings.
S.H.O.W. LavaLove® event locations were specifically chosen to embed them in the heart of communities hardest hit by the COVID-19 pandemic, starting with CURE Insurance Arena in Trenton, NJ on Saturday, April 30, 2022. These are FREE statewide events, open to anyone, anywhere who needs same day assistance, providing FREE food, brand new clothing, education, employment, housing, shelter, financial, vaccines, medical exams, dental exams, and various other types of assistance through over 50 onsite partners with a special appearance and performance by a celebrity guest. The goal of these events is to begin the restorative process from the moment guests enter the event.
New for this year, at each event, guests can shop for free at the pop-up clothing store Plenti® where they can “purchase” at no cost, brand new clothing generously donated by Amazon® and Madi Apparel.
Guests are encouraged to sign up through Eventbrite as tickets are expected to sell out quickly and available on a first-come, first-served basis. GET FREE TICKETS: https://powerchangeslives.eventbrite.com
A celebrity charity benefit concert raising money for programs to rapidly rehouse unsheltered homeless, address food insecurity and mental health in low-income, minority and underserved communities throughout New Jersey is also being planned for future dates at these venues.
To pull off such a huge feat as the S.H.O.W. LavaLove® events, there is an urgent need for volunteers. Volunteers are the core of ensuring that each of the services provided to guests are delivered with Radical Hospitality. Those interested in volunteering as a general volunteer or medical service provider should signup through Eventbrite: https://powerchangeslives.eventbrite.com.
