Book signing event at MIIR Thurs. July 20: FamilyWorks is having an event to showcase board member Scott Allard’s new book, Places in Need and to raise awareness about what we do and how to get involved. All are welcome to attend! We do need two volunteers who are familiar with FamilyWorks from 5-8 pm to help with giving out giveaways, encouraging guests to sign-in at the event, handing out raffle tickets, and collecting donations.
Backup volunteer for OSL: Can you pick up Operation Sack Lunch food from the Wallingford Senior Center on these dates: Aug. 14, 21, and Sept. 11? This would be at around 12 pm and you would be done within 30 minutes to an hour. You would need a car to transport the items to FamilyWorks (you do not need a big car).

High School Students: Need those service hours? Come volunteer with us over the summer! Lots of our volunteers go on vacation and we could use extra help during these times.
