Weekly Opportunities - November 14, 2022

Here are some important updates/deadlines to keep in mind for this week:


1. Psych Pal's  

Meet our psych pals Manu! He is a very loyal companion to our friend Marisa. Manu is 11 years old, and his birthday is on 4/29/11. A fun fact about him is that his favorite treat is cheese:) Marisa told us that Manu brightens her whole world just by being him.
