The Washington County Dems will participate in the “United Against Hunger” event for our September Community Service Project.
The Volunteer Center arranges for the assembly of thousands of meals for families in Washington County.
On Thursday, September 24th from 4:30 to 7:00 PM we will help prepare “Food Packages” at the Washington County Fairgrounds’ Ziegler Building.
If you can help package food, please contact Tanya Lohr at 414-467-8469 or firstname.lastname@example.org .
There is no age limit on helping—kids are welcome too!
