Hello. My name is Emily Cantu and I am a community health student taking a personal health course at UTSA. I am required to perform 10 hours of volunteer work for a project and was hoping your organization would provide me with an opportunity to learn and aid in any health issue both the association and I could benefit from. If there is any volunteer opportunity I can take part of please feel free to email me at Emily.cantu7@gmail.com or call me at 956-435-1345.
