Project Resiliency is right around the corner, and I’m hoping I can count on your help! I am looking for energetic, organized, and creative people like you to join our Project Resiliency volunteer team.

Together, we will plan company team-building events and activities, engage and rally employees to take action, demonstrate our corporate values, and give back to the community. By joining this team, you will have the opportunity to craft new skill sets that you can leverage for future work projects. You will also play an integral role in improving local lives and strengthening our community.

Please let me know if you would like to join me as part of the Addiction Awareness Society’s Project Resiliency volunteer team. I’m excited to bring our organization together to show our local love and to create ripples of positive impact in our community.
