The Arc of Williamsburg seeks our help to volunteer at the Learning Lab on Wednesdays from 10-12, 1 volunteer at a time. We supported the Learning Lab as one of three area Rotary Clubs supporting the District grant. The volunteers will work one-on-one with our clients using math, reading, and word processing programs.
