This is Steven on Bobby’s campaign. We recently put together a calendar for roughly the next 30 days for our volunteer hours, and so I wanted to send it over to you so the office can provide it to people interested in volunteering as well as posting to social media. I hope all is well in the office, and of course let me know if there’s anything you need. Our offices aren’t far apart, and I’m always happy to help.
