It is my pleasure to announce a new Email from the New Philly AIDS Thrift @ Giovanni’s Room, one that is my pleasure to transcribe for all of you.

I received this yesterday, Sunday, August 31, 2014, 11:41AM.

Am I going to volunteer?  You bet your bippy!

When I shall volunteer is another story, but I look forward to doing so, sooner than later.

If you happen to have any time to volunteer, please do so, and if you know anyone who does, please forward this blog post to him or her.
