Help drive the Amities to and from English Class

Hello Amity Supporters / Mini van Drivers :)

We have several Amity Interns that are taking English classes on Tuesday nights from 6-9. We need your help providing rides to and from those classes. This is a quick and easy way to support the Amity program!

Amities need to be picked up at 5:45 p.m. at PSI and taken to Eisenhower Elementary School (1001 Highway 7, Hopkins).

Amities need to be picked up at 9:00 p.m. and driven to their various homes. A link to all addresses can be found here.

If you can help, please sign up here (first opportunity is this Tuesday).

Total number of Amities will be no more than 5 (Ignacio, Sergio, Noelia, Michael, Yaneth).

Additional classes may be added and SUG will be updated to reflect that.

Thank you for your help and support!

Your Amity Coordinator Team,
