March Volunteer Opportunities

Dear Penn Community,

Each month, Penn Volunteers In Public Service posts a list of volunteer opportunities. These opportunities are developed from the many requests we receive for partnerships and assistance from the local community.

The University community continues to work towards being good neighbors in our shared community. We thank you for your overwhelming support and for your generosity. If you would like to volunteer for any of these programs, please contact me for further information at (215) 898-2020 or send an e-mail to sammapp@pobox.upenn.edu if you are willing to volunteer.
