You may want to commit to an entire year of service as a project chairman or board member. Or, you may prefer to volunteer a couple of hours, here and there. Whatever you can do, however you can help, we want to match you with the volunteer opportunity perfect for you. If you have a particular interest,  you can email Maya Ortiz at annsmithpto@gmail.com.
