    I am looking for an opportunity to get to Oklahoma an help volunteer in any way I can. Most volunteer websites require you to go to conferences and other training events before you can volunteer and I was wondering if your organization is allowing the public to come help. If you could please reply with some general information I would really appreciate it.

    God bless.
