There are a number of Children's Foundation Events and 3rd party events (events run by community members.) These events are the second biggest fundraising revenue for the foundation and are a huge part of what makes our work possible. These events cannot happen without support from volunteers. Your efforts, while supporting these events, will make a huge difference in the lives of local children. As a volunteer, you will enjoy fun and exciting community events and walk away knowing that, together, we have raised the much needed funding for the children who need it the most! Now that ...is a win win!
