Prepare Affair Success and Spillover Date

Posted on November 18, 2010 by

volunteersOur 23rd Annual Prepare Affair was a success with more than 3,000 volunteers spending their Saturday helping elderly, disabled and low-income neighbors prepare their homes for the cold winter weather.

We saw such an interest in participating from volunteers that we're hosting a Prepare Affair Spillover Day this Saturday, Nov. 20. We're thrilled that so many can donate their time to help others.

Thank you to all who volunteered.
