Volunteer Architect Needed

The holiday season is upon us and although we are all very busy, many of us are looking for ways to give back to those less fortunate.

AIA West Jersey has recently become aware of a local community organization in need of design assistance. The Angels Community Outreach, located in Pitman, New Jersey, manages a storefront to provide clothing and necessities to people in need at no-cost. They are currently looking for a volunteer Architect to donate his or her time to convert an existing residential use to a commercial use.

If you are in a position to offer design assistance, or are interested in learning more about the organization, please visit their website https://angelsofgod.org and reach out to Elissa Darrow at The Angels Community Outreach for more information.
