November Community Service

For our November 8th business meeting, CALL’s Community Service Committee will collect donations to benefit Chicago’s A Safe Haven, http://www.asafehaven.org/veterans/​, which offers veterans housing based on individual need, assessment, and eligibility, and supportive services.
