The Community Service Project Committee works to provide local hands-on community service opportunities for our members and their families. Committee members plan each year’s projects, and help solicit member volunteers to participate in each event. The group identifies local needs by contacting club members, local non-profits, churches and organizations that can help identify those who need assistance. Organizations who have service project needs should contact the Committee Chair.
