PPPIE Needs Your Help!

LOOKING FOR A GREAT NEW YEAR'S RESOLUTION? PPIE is building a fun, dynamic group of volunteers to help us achieve our mission to serve students and schools (and to supplement your Ambassador role!).  Specifically, we are looking to build a core Communications Team and a range of volunteers for specific school site activities.   What can you do?  Please share this message with anyone you know who might be interested in supporting our schools – and have them contact Sarah and me to learn more.  We'll help them every step of the way!
