September Volunteer Opportunities
Dear Penn Community,
I hope you enjoyed the summer. In our continued efforts to be good neighbors, the following is a list of the monthly posting of community service opportunities. As many of you know, each month, Penn Volunteers In Public Service (Penn VIPS) posts a list of volunteer opportunities. These opportunities are developed from the many requests we get from the surrounding community to be partners in a particular initiative and/or sometimes to provide assistance.
Please contact me via e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org) to volunteer for any of the programs. Thank you for your continued support.
