*Do you know anyone that belongs to a 100 Women That Cares group? Would you consider submitting Starfish Project Foundation at your next meeting.

*We really need 1 – 3 volunteers that could take the lead on our Pen Pal project. We have additional locations that would like to participate and need someone to take the lead. If you would like to be a pen pal to someone that is at a nursing home and in isolation, please consider signing up.

*Who likes to color? We have several sheets that will be turned into place mats at the nursing homes and senior centers. They can be picked up or colored onsite. We can use help with the lamination process too. Once completed, Starfish Project will laminate and set up delivery. Need one person that could coordinate more facilities (maybe 1 hour a week on this project).
 
*We have several t-shirts that need to be cut for Inclusions Connections.
