(EDITOR’S NOTE: Fauntleroy resident Judy Pickens, who volunteers her time and talent to a variety of endeavors including local schools, continues to gather and report information on volunteer needs at West Seattle schools where the need is greatest, sharing it here periodically. Here’s what will probably be the last request for this school year.)

  1. Any hours on any day, as in a “drop in basis”? I am very interested in volunteering however I have a crazy schedule and the only days that might be open are Monday/Tuesday. Should I just stop by or pre-arrange? Thanks!! =)
