Safari Land Volunteers

Safari Land (located in the base Library) has started a new project for cleaning. I’m looking for volunteers that will help out every day or when available at 0830 and 1650 to get the job done. It only takes about 10-15 minutes with 5-6 people. If you’re interested in leading a team, or you’d like to volunteer for yourself please contact SrA Wintera Jones, A1C Kalynn Thomas or AB Ruth Guerrero for assistance.
