WOW is currently seeking volunteers to adopt-a-sidewalk of a client. This is a great volunteer opportunity for an individual, family, business or church group.

Volunteers are needed to assist with client interviews and scheduling the week of November 26. Volunteers are asked to sign up for at least one shift; multiple shifts are appreciated.
