Si estás interesado en integrarte en su comunidad aqui en Oregón central y ayudar a otros en sus necesidades,  las cuales creo que alguna vez todos hemos tenido, no dejes que eso mismo le pase a otra persona. No dudes en levantar tu mano y decir “yo me ofrezco”, “yo puedo ayudar”, “yo quiero participar en la comunidad”.
