Greetings Volunteers & Partners!

Maybe you’ve heard about our awesome upcoming Justice For All Event, Celebrating 20 Years of Service to the Community. Well, if you haven’t please check out the event page HERE and get your ticket today.  We are hoping to see more of our volunteers at this year’s event, so please take note of both the discounted volunteer pricing as well as the discounted student tickets for past and present interns and student volunteers. JFA 2014 will be an excellent event and fun opportunity to support the Clinic and meet others in the community who support the Clinic’s mission.

Now to the main purpose of this post: We need your help! Can you take cases? Want to help out with a phone-a-thon survey day? Can you assist at our Project GRACE Help Desk? We need all the help we can get, so take a look at your schedules and consider volunteering this fall for some of these great opportunities to help the community.

As always, thank you again for your time and support!

Sincerely,
Erin
