Looking for new opportunities to contribute to your community, use your unique skills, and meet other people with shared interests? By all means, start with AAUW, but don’t feel you have to stop there; come learn about four very deserving local charities that aid those in need:

PADS (housing)
FISH (food)
People’s Resource Center (various kinds of help)
Family Shelter Service (various kinds of help for victims of domestic violence)

The representative from each of these groups will give a brief overview of the group s/he represents, and will outline volunteer opportunities. Audience members may make donations as desired; this is NOT required.
