To make that happen, we need YOU! So, additional information and the volunteer application for Summer 2016 are now ready and available to you here. 

As always, feel free to contact me with any questions and comments and please share this opportunity (via social media - you can share the recent post on our Facebook page - , email, conversations...)  with anyone you know (individuals, social groups, churches, neighborhood listserves, other volunteer groups, etc.) who may be interested.  

Very Warm Regards,
