Staff Volunteer Projects are scheduled for Friday, September 27 from noon to 1:00 PM. Among all that we celebrate during Staff Appreciation Week, WE RECOGNIZE THE HEART OF STAFF FOR SERVICE, their sense of community, and their willingness to go above and beyond the call of duty. In light of this, it seemed fitting to schedule opportunities at the end of Staff Appreciation Week for staff to go out into the community and volunteer their time and energy in ways that will highlight these esteemed qualities while benefiting the community at large.

We have created openings for staff to volunteer at one of three separate community projects. Read the details here and learn how to register. Space is LIMITED. The deadline to sign up is Friday, September 20.
