Easy Volunteer Project!

Volunteers neededWhether you’re a student who needs volunteer hours or an adult who has some spare time, we could really use your help the week of March 13-18.  Three weeks per year, we have to count every person that walks in our front door.  It’s really difficult to watch the door and serve our customers at the same time.  So, we would love to have some volunteers to just sit where they can see the door and make marks on a tally sheet whenever someone walks in.  It’s easy for you and extremely helpful to us.  If you’re interested in helping, just let a staff member know what days of the week and hours of the day you will come.  The staff would really appreciate you!
