Thanks to those of you who made it out to our meeting this evening. We really need all hands on deck!

Where: 3925 5th Ave Altoona, PA 16602 When: Anytime the polls are open!
If you're available to come by for an hour or two and answer the phone your assistance would be much appreciated. Email Gillian Kratzer at email@example.com to say when you're available. Volunteers would be most welcome between 9am and 5pm.
The campaigns also need volunteers, click here to sign up! We cannot do this without you. If you can give us just one or two hours of phone calls, time at the polls, or canvassing time you can make a huge difference in one of our campaigns.
