Another way to contribute to diversity efforts
this year is through the Committee's soon-tolaunch adopt-a-classroom project, especially for
our Spanish-speaking members. The committee is
in the process of selecting the school, but the goal
is for our volunteers to read a popular children's
story to younger students in English and Spanish.
A special thanks to committee member Milton
Velez who was instrumental in developing this new
initiative.
