While many large groups request work project opportunities at our locations, we are happy to report that such projects are beginning to be accomplished and thus fewer and farther between. We still have need for small groups with construction specialists or those with special equipment (scaffolding for high painting projects, gym floor waxing equipment) to volunteer. We also welcome inquiries from groups willing to contribute funds toward the cost of the project, as we have multiple projects that are simply awaiting funding for supplies. E-mail firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
