Hello all, happy summer! We are very excited to begin SASO’s 7th year in Fairfield! This year, SASO will again have over 200 young men in our organization, compared to 35 our first year! That says a lot!
First, thank you to all our returning members for your hard work and commitment. Our philanthropy partners are thrilled with SASO and so grateful for our contributions to their organizations! Together, we have served meals, collected coats, toys, and food, tended gardens, helped clean up the beach, and so much more! Together we have made a difference in our community.
Also, welcome to all our new members! We hope you find membership in SASO to be rewarding. The more you put into SASO, the more you’ll get out of it. So please, jump right in and get involved! In fact, we need help with events currently posted! Check out our website today! Members often find it easier to volunteer during the summer without the demands of the school year.
We encourage all members to check out the opportunity to earn the Presidential Volunteer Service Award (PVSA) by meeting certain service hour requirements. More information can be found on our website. Qualified recipients will be awarded letters of commendation from President Trump as well as a PVSA medal. For those of you who might be interested, the summer is a fantastic time to get a jump on accumulating those required hours. Eleven young men qualified this year.
We also hope members will attend our free Personal Growth events on relevant teen topics. These events will be posted on our website and are an added benefit to members, separate from your volunteering.
To continue our great work and ensure the longevity of the organization, SASO must have ongoing parental support. As such, commitment to a role within the SASO organization is being asked of all parent members. If you are interested in becoming a Philanthropy Liaison or an Event Captain, please get in touch. We definitely have spots for you to help! Please look for a Sign-up Genius coming soon to make it easier for you to offer your time and talents to SASO.
