Hey, any chance you could add another couple of people. I am very motivated to help the homeless, and not just one day a year. Please let me know if any openings become available. Wendy Bartel @ 732-759-5791 or firstname.lastname@example.org, but texting works better than emails for me. Thanks!! And thanks for what you're doing!
