Here's when & how you can help
Wed. Jan. 29 - Volunteers (8-10) are needed to tie out the scarves, either the night before (Jan 28), or early in the morning (Jan 29 - finish by 7:00a.m.) Pick up your scarves on the Sunday prior, or in the church Library at your convenience. Volunteers will go out in pairs - find your own partner or we can match you up with somebody. Scan your route the following evening (Jan 30) to pick up any scarves remaining.
Please let Kay know if you can help - email@example.com or call 647-453-6119 Thanks!
