Last Saturday I had the incrediBULL opportunity to volunteer with Bull City Classrooms. It wasn't hard. It only took 2 hours. There was no paperwork. Signing up took less than a minute. And there was free coffee. Winning.
This tiny but mighty volunteer organization is an unBULLievaBULL way to make a positive impact. They're trying to reach 30 volunteers every Saturday. Let's do this Bull City.
From the founder of Bull City Classrooms Anish Simhal:
Bull City Classrooms is a nonprofit organization with the goal to get the incrediBULL Durham community involved in local classrooms. Durham teachers are underpaid and overworked — our goal is to address the latter. We organize two hour blitz volunteer sessions on Saturday mornings where groups of 20+ volunteers help teachers with whatever they need.
This includes activities such as cleaning/sorting out closets and science experiment kits, making folder packets, and moving desks. Basically, labor intensive tasks that would take a single teacher a few days, but only two hours for a large group of volunteers.
Interested? Sign up for an event today!

"The Bulls of Durham" living history book. Launched on April 10th, 2019, Durham's 150th Anniversary.
"The Bulls of Durham" living history book blends Durham's rich history with stories and perspectives of our city's greats that are continuing to build upon that history. And in this way, this is the story of Durham, North Carolina through the bulls' eyes.
Learn how a city that literally started from a tobacco seed in the ashes of the Civil War grew into the best city on earth. Discover how a stolen bull brought about a history shifting, global tobacco empire; and how 150 years later that relates to a British mustard company having beef with Sheila. #NotSorry
Find out the backstory to how the now hippest, foodiest, tech-hub of the South also gave rise to the bullpen, billboards, branding and baseball cards. Delve into our city's strong Black history that proves "Do It Like Durham" isn't a passing trend and will give you a profound sense of reverence walking down Parrish Street.
Best of all, see the common thread that runs through the stories of teachers, politicians, business owners, hip-hop artists, painters, activists, historians, architects and the real Bull City OG's. Hint: it's the BULLief that in Durham anything is possiBULL.
Welcome to Durham the incrediBULL place where grit meets grace. Here all you have to have is a dream and faith the size of a tobacco seed, because well, tobacco seeds build global empires, not mustard seeds.
Project book launch date: April 10, 2019 - Durham's 150th Anniversary.
