The CoolMom group invites you to participate in the Fauntleroy Ferry No-Idle Event scheduled for November 17th, 11:30 am to 4:30 pm on SW Fauntleroy Way at Lincoln Park:


Did you know that 10 seconds of idling uses more fuel than turning off the engine and restarting it? And, that an idling vehicle emits 20 times more pollution than one traveling 32 mph?

You can help us educate those motorists waiting to board the Fauntleroy Ferry by handing out our No-Idling book mark while drivers wait for the ferry. You can sign up for a hour and a half shift here. Also, on Friday, November 16th from 3:30 to 4:30 pm volunteers will be canvassing the Fauntleroy Neighborhood with flyers about the event happening on Saturday. Contact, Terri (terri@coolmom.org) or sign up here to help out.

EVENT DETAILS:
11:30 a.m. to noon, learn the facts and what to say to drivers (Pizza to be served to volunteers)
Volunteers will be given information to pass along to motorists and a simple script
Volunteers will administer a quick 3 to 5 question survey to motorists
Volunteers will be assigned a certain section of the sidewalk
Kids ages 6 and up are welcome
*Kids ages 6 to 10, must be accompanied by an adult/parent volunteer
There may be groups (2-5) of kids assigned to a volunteer
noon to 4:30 pm, educate drivers along Fauntleroy Way SW with your children**

Meet up in the parking lot at Lincoln Park, closest to the Fauntleroy Ferry Doc. A white canopy with the CoolMom sign will be visible near the park -parking lot.

*Parents will be responsible for their own children, unless specifically arranged through contacting Terri Glaberson, Program Manager for Think Outside the Car, terri@coolmom.org.

**Some children will be the prime communicator to the drivers, but will have an adult present at all times.

Please sign up for a shift!
