Volunteers Group – Times and dates vary

This group of avid volunteers gets together to do group projects as they present themselves, and also has its own page to share individual and group volunteer opportunities. Under the direction of Denise Mosley, we will be assembling toiletry bags to give to the homeless and needy at Christmas.
