It’s not everyone who is committed enough to take off time from work, or to use vacation time to help others. Maybe you can? If you can volunteer time to help others in need, we definitely need to hear from you. We want to build a small citizens “Boots on the Ground” brigade of volunteers to help on the scene. The value of your time is priceless, and there are many who will benefit from it.
