Service Unit Volunteers Needed

We are a very large and active service unit.   There are many opportunities that do no require a large commitment.  We have many volunteers that have been going their jobs for many years that are looking for someone to take on their duties.  These volunteers are still active and willing to mentor and train any new volunteers.  There are also many opportunities to help with any of our activities and events.  Please contact Georgina if you can help in any way.
