Volunteering side by side with ibm

 Volunteers will be assisting with water delivery door-to-door and at the
water distribution centers.  If you do not want to do heavy lifting or be
walking outside all day, there is an urgent need inside the Volunteer
Reception Center putting communication in water bottle recycle bags.

The event will take place on Thursday, March 24.   Bus transportation will be
available from both the Southfield and Lansing IBM Offices.  Bus
transportation will be available for the first 50 volunteers who sign up from
each location.   If you plan to attend, please send a note to Denise Royer at to confirm a seat on the bus by Monday, March 21,  and
indicate if you will be riding the Lansing or Southfield bus.  You may call
Denise with any questions 517-617-8474.
