Help Wanted. Volunteer Again!
The USSVI National Office in Silverdale is in need of a volunteer that would require minimal computer skills to assist the office manager in conducting national business, primarily mailing out documents.
The volunteer would need to work 1 to 3 hours a week on a day and time negotiated with the office manager.
Helping the organization at the national level will increase your knowledge of the Subvet doings at the national level and the 160 bases located around the country. It is also gratifying.
You would be 1 of 5 local volunteers.
