We have a lot of building to do to strengthen Alateen. Can you help?

The Happy Trails Alateen Family Group is the only Alateen group in our Area that is open (meets Mondays at 7pm, 3 St. Vital Rd, Wpg). But we need volunteers or it will close. You’d be surprised at how much even one night a month can help.
