Volunteer Update from Rockville

One of our fantastic volunteers spent time in Rockville last night to post flyers and let people know about Sassafras:

just got home from rockville. people were soooooooooo nice. And unlike in DC & Chevy Chase where everyone has heard of Sass, no one knew the story, except for one guy that works at City Paws - he knew of course.a girl's softball game was just ending so i gave business cards to lots of people, both softball coaches took a card and said they'd tell all school coaches and post a flyer on the coaches bulletin board, i flyered cars in the parking lot and then went into the school. handed cards to guys playing basketball, teens playing badminton, ...i then went back outside and found the side of the school where the cafeteria and kitchen was, and easy access to the janitor's area. i put flyers up in the janitor's room, and on their carts, and eventually i did meet one of them, and asked him to spread the word.
Back outside i began driving in concentric circles around the school and flyered wooden utility poles when i found them. talked to a lot of people - a traffic guy writing parking tickets, 2 cops, 3 pizza delivery guys,  people walking their dogs, anyone who said they lived in the neighborhood.  i asked every teenager that i talked to to put the info on their facebook pages. i posted a flyer in Ben & Jerrys, and on several dumpsters. eventually i ran out of daylight, but i kept going until i ran out of flyers.
We cannot say "Thank-you" enough to everyone that puts in so much time and effort to help us bring Sassafras home.  Keep your fingers crossed!


  1. Wow! What a wonderful volunteer!
    Crossing & praying.

  2. This is a very dedicated volunteer for such an important cause. Let's bring Sassafras home soon!

    Thank you to you and all others in helping. Jeff and Beth deserve all the help they can get. They are so devoted to their Sassafras. Amazing people. You are all amazing for helping them!

    I'm hoping and praying beautiful Sassafras will be home safe and sound forever!

    Best of luck and warm wishes.
