New DropN-Go Effort Needs Volunteers

In an attempt to get the word out about our campaign to all parts of Fremont we have started a new effort called “DropN-Go” where volunteers are canvassing neighborhoods with flyers and pre-addressed envelopes and leaving them on doorsteps.   We need many volunteers to make this successful.   We supply the materials and assign you a few streets at a time.   You pick a time that is convenient for you to do the drop offs.  If you (or your kids) are interested in helping with this effort over the next 1-2 weeks please contact Christina Broadwin asap at cubwired@comcast.net
