Help us with The Great Tubman Tidy-Up!

We are in need of volunteers to help prepare Tubman Chrysalis Center for renovations!

Have you ever looked around and thought, “Gosh, when was the last time these toys and games were enjoyed by the little ones?” Well, we recently took an intense look at our Childcare area at Tubman Chrysalis Center and realized we needed to do some serious Spring Cleaning. Along with moving our Childcare area, we need support in moving our food pantry, cleaning filing cabinets, and more. With a variety of tasks, we recognize that we need the community’s support to get this everything completed.

The volunteer opportunities mentioned would be great for families, friends, co-workers, church groups, or book clubs. All tasks must be completed by March 21, 2020.
