We have a number of diverse volunteer opportunities in September - tabling at an outdoor dog walk/fair; a vegan food booth at a two-day festival; and indoor tabling at a health fair. Plus, we have our Bi-Monthly meeting in September, and another dog event in early October.

If you have an interest in getting more involved, give us a call (314-851-0928) or e-mail us (start1@charter.net).
