Your volunteering time sheet is due

We are wrapping up another incredible year at SORBA Chattanooga, none of which would be possible without the help of a small army of volunteers. We're planning something special for those who have given so much of their time to help further our mission, but first we need to get a tally of the hours contributed by each person. 

A form is now available to turn in your work hours. We know this is going to require some remembering, but do your best. The form will be active from this point forward so in the future you can submit hours as soon as they're completed. 

Let us know if you have any questions, and thanks again for your hard work.
