Community Service Committee
PSALA's Community Service Committee is a very active committee that works to provide visibility for the Chapter through organized participation in community service. As members of PSALA, our mission, in part, is to (1) support the diverse community in which we live and to work through our members’ collective time, talents and contributions; (2) to provide Chapter members with opportunities to reach out to others; and (3) to lead by example, encouraging our local organizations to increase their volunteer efforts in the community. The Co-Chairs of the Community Service Committee for 2014-2015 are Lisa Miner and Evelyn Dunagan.
PSALA is pleased to announce that for the 2014-15 chapter year it’s community service partner will be Rising Out of the Shadows (ROOTS). ROOTS is a young adult shelter that provides over-night accommodations for homeless youth ages 18-25. Through the services offered at ROOTS their clients are also provided with skills to help them lead successful lives, moving into permanent housing and finding steady employment. Through the generous support of our members and business partners, we were able to raise $1750 at the April 3 Networking event held at the Palace Ballroom. This money will be used to replace sleeping pads and provide over-night personal property storage bins. You can see below two other scheduled opportunities for our members and business partners to volunteer at ROOTS. For more information about ROOTS visit their website and see articles in future issues of Soundings.

Please join us for an evening of team building and helping to serve the needs of those in our community by volunteering to prepare dinner for ROOTS.
Please join us for a Newsletter & Cleaning Day - On Saturday, August 16th, from 10 AM - 2 PM we're looking for a group of about 15 people to help prepare our quarterly newsletter (lots of folding), help with some shelter organizing, and cleaning (toilet scrubbing not required). Fun times will be had for sure while also helping to benefit our 2014 Community Service Partner, ROOTS.
