2022-2023 Community Service Agenda     All dates and donations are subject to change 

The real meaning of COMMUNITY SERVICE is volunteer work that is done to help people in the community that are less fortunate than others. 

People do COMMUNITY SERVICE because they WANT TO, not because they HAVE TO. 

We do not expect VTWL members to give to all of the COMMUNITY SERVICE projects.  

ALL donations are appreciated and collected before a VTWL General Meeting.

All dates and donations are subject to change
