You and more than 1,500 other volunteers shared your hearts and souls through 12,188 service hours to help children and families last year. You and other dedicated groups of individuals, community organizations, companies and staff empowered our children and families to hope, heal, love and dream again.
Whether you worked on a campus beautification project, read to a child, tutored at Homework Help, volunteered at one of our events or made a difference in an entirely different way – we are so grateful for you!
