Volunteers Needed

The coffee cart sponsored by Chapter 223 needs some volunteers to meet and the greet the patients coming to the Santa Rosa VA Clinic and give them some coffee and a donut before their appointment. Help is most needed on Thursdays. Working conditions are great (except when it is raining, when it is cold, when it is hot) just like being in the military again. The pay is also fantastic (all zeros)! Interested? Contact Lou Nunez or Earl Walters.
