Week of July 19

We need Volunteers. If things go as well as they have up to now, we will soon be able to resume our fund-raising activities such as the Flea Market and Christmas Bazaar. However, none of this is possible without the ways you can help and volunteer when the time comes.

Нам потрібні волонтери. Якщо все піде так добре, як дотепер, ми незабаром зможемо відновити наші заходи зі збору коштів: Ярмарок вживаних та нових речей та Різдвяний базар. Однак це стане можливим, при умові зголошення добровольців до помочі, коли настане той час.
