Fundraising

Fundraising is critical to help keep our doors open. We are always looking for creative, hard working volunteers. Volunteers can take the initiative to plan, manage, and implement new ideas or help with our established fundraising events.

We are always in need of volunteers to help work events, whether it is baking fudge, setting up, or carrying boxes. A few hours of your time on the weekend of a big event make our fundraisers possible. Please consider adding yourself to the list of volunteers that are able to help out a couple times a year!
