We encourage those who are inspired to make a difference to bring their energy, enthusiasm, and skills to our events and ongoing programs. And why not have fun while doing it!? Whether you’re an individual or a group, we welcome your involvement. Volunteer opportunities include helping with our annual events such as our back-to-school backpack giveaways and holiday toy drive, or by coordinating with our Fund Development Department to create your own fundraising event or by being matched to one of our programs to work with youth and families.
