Our volunteer coordinator’s student will be graduating out after this year. We will need someone to take over coordinator duties if you would like to see this program continue. After 6 years of running OBOB we have worked out an easy system, compiled a checklist of duties and have all necessary forms and files ready to be handed over to the next volunteer.

For questions, comments, and volunteer opportunities contact Michelle McKeon.
