PUT IN THE WORK

There are many ways you can help our organization and our community flourish. Your time, energy, and knowledge is just as valuable as money. For those who are interested in supporting our cause but don’t necessarily have the means to donate we have many ways you can help, both virtually and in person.

 

Our request is that you are willing to commit, whether it be 3 hours a week or 8 hours a month. Providing us with a consistent schedule of the time you’re willing to commit will help us remain organized and delegate tasks strategically.
