Community Readiness Survey
Ready for School is conducting a Community Readiness Survey in our local communities of Holland, Hamilton and Zeeland.  In order to get a good sampling of the area we hope to collect 600 responses to the survey.  We need volunteers to help us reach that many people. This is where you come in. This is a hour and a half, one-time commitment, or volunteer for more than one time if you want!  Multiple dates available to volunteer.
