Our annual holiday break will run from December 23 through January 5. Our last day of outreach in 2019 will be December 22, and we will resume outreach on January 6, 2020. Please prepare for the break by stocking up on the supplies that you and you friends will need, and then some! During the 2-week break, we will continue providing cell phone delivery services (except on December 25 and January 1).
