Public Notice

We Want You 2

This is an updated list of a similar column we printed this past spring. The variety of types of organizations listed here is as varied as the skills these folks request. (Part 1, last week.)

If your organization is not listed, be sure to submit your calls for volunteers to "Public Notice" on a regular basis. We will try to print three of these call-ups per year. If your group is listed, please check the information and update us regularly with any changes you might have.

Now, get out there and help!
