We offer many opportunities to make a difference
in the lives of the families we serve
Volunteers are key to carrying out our mission. You can help by making a meal, reading to a child, giving a ride to a guest or staying overnight at one of our host sites. Donating a few hours of your time can make a huge difference.
Company-tailored volunteer programs, event sponsorships, and cause-marketing relationships provide a way to help families in need, boost employee pride, and enhance corporate presence.
Host an Event
Hold one of our signature events as a fundraiser. We take the guesswork out of planning and execution by sharing best practices and customizable templates for Charity Walks, Golf Outings and Box Cities.
