Richmond Center for Christian Study Needs Volunteers: Urgent Volunteer Need! The Richmond Center for Christian Study is in present need of additional volunteers to take 2-4 hours one morning, afternoon or evening per week (for as many or as few weeks as you are able) just to be present and watch over the space at Libbie & Grove as it is used by UR students and the community. There is a very short “to do” list, but most of the time could be used reading or doing your own work as you simply keep your eyes open for any needed help. Please contact Chris at email@example.com or 804-852-5151 for more info. Thank you! Chris Daniel
