We are always in need of more volunteers, and there is plenty to do before, during and after our events, in our Center City office and even from home.
We are especially in need of volunteer groups -- school groups, Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, church groups, employer groups, etc. -- all ages and all abilities are welcome! 
Anyone interested should call 215-271-1500 and ask for Kristin Marnie or Joy McManus or email Kristin at kristin.marnie@nmss.org.
