New Opportunities and NEW WEBSITE!

For the past few months we have been working very hard on getting our information updated. So I am very excited to be able to post this....our new website is up and running! Please check it out:

Go on now, have a look around! Our old website will redirect you for a while but be sure to change it in your favorites/bookmarks. If it's not in your favorites, I encourage you to add it! :)

I think it would be fun to see what everyone else in the community is doing. So, When is the last time you volunteered and what did you do? Please share your stories! :)

Here are this week's volunteer opportunities. I hope that you can find something that suites your interests.
