Jane Dittmar for Congress

The Jane Dittmar for Congress campaign, now located in the Ix Building, welcomes volunteers and visitors who want to support the campaign. Please come by to help with a phone bank on Tuesday or Thursday evenings or join a door-to- door canvas on Wednesday evenings, Saturday mornings or Sunday afternoons. We need your help!

The campaign also needs Comfort Captains to provide food during the phone banks and for canvassers. The interns and volunteers yearn for home cooked food to give them the energy needed to make those calls to persuade 5th District voters that Jane is the best candidate to represent all of us.

To arrange to bring your food contributions, email linda@janeforcongress.com or patty@janeforcongress.com
