Board members are volunteers who give their time to help others. The junior board raises money by holding a number of sales during the year for employees and visitors. The sales feature discounted items from various themes, including fashion, home goods and electronics. The funds were raised over nearly eight sales and went toward the purchase of 13 standard and six bariatric chairs.
