Called Curbside Outreach, it’s an opportunity to drop off completed work or donations and pick up any or all components for your next project. Manned by co-chairs Jessica and Adrienne, it typically takes places on the first and third Saturday of the month, from 10 a.m. to noon, in front of Adrienne’s garage. You’ll find Adrienne’s address in the Membership Directory.
