2017 COMMUNITY OUTREACH PROGRAM

This year, we will be chosing different charitable organizations to support over the course of two (2) months each.  We will be holding 50/50 drawings at each chapter meeting, the proceeds of which will be donated to the charitable organization designated for that month.  We have also invited representatives from each organization to come speak to the chapter to share their mission.

If you have a favorite organization that you would like to see the chapter support, please let the Board of Directors know by emailing us at SVAPA@live.com
