Volunteer BREC January
Happy New Year!
Happy New Year to all! I am very excited about 2019 and all the new things that will be happening with the volunteer program. We have a new software that is in the works that will help streamline the volunteer program and allow volunteers to track their own hours. BREC's first volunteer manual has also been approved by the Commission and will be designed and publicized soon. There is more so stay tuned. As always, we have several events and programs where we need volunteers to assist. Check them out below and don't forget to follow us on Facebook @VolunteerBrec. I look forward to seeing you around!
