Just as in any organization, there is a lot of “behind the scenes” work that must be done in order for our community events and projects to be completed. We are always in need of physical help, whether it is setting up, or cleaning up, stuffing envelopes, or answering phones. We are also responsible for keeping our facilities in working condition and making improvements as necessary.
