A note from F.O.P.A.R: FOPAR continuously makes a difference in our community. But to keep up, we need you! Volunteers do not need to attend every project, but can pick those that fit their schedule. Even an hour or two is very helpful to us, and everyone is welcome. We can also use monetary donations to purchase supplies. Paint and painting supplies are our biggest need. Please consider getting involved, as FOPAR is a very important group to the wonderful community we have in West Springfield.
