In light of the tremendous success that was last week’s 9/11 National Day of Service in Oliver, this week’s Service Spotlight is on the ladies who make our Together We Serve partnership happen. On behalf of the corporate partners that they represent, these ladies put in a TON of work behind the scenes to give their employees a spectacular volunteer experience with The 6th Branch.
