Dust off those work pants, break out the paint brushes, and get ready for a month of volunteering like none other! RDI is pleased to sponsor the Powered by Rural Month of Service in July 2012. Throughout the month of July, individuals, organizations, and communities across Oregon and the Pacific Northwest will set aside a day, a week, or even a whole month to promoting community service projects in their area. Month of Service will highlight the great things going on in rural communities across our region.
