Junior Givers Program
The Junior Givers Program is based on the simple principle that building a giving behavior starts with our children. The Junior Givers program is a great opportunity to teach our children that giving back and helping others is a rewarding experience. It is especially important to teach young ones that they are part of a larger community, and that we are responsible for everyone around us. By giving the value of charity a central role in the family dynamic, you can encourage your child to grow up with a healthy sense of compassion and a strong charitable spirit.
Job Description: We have various volunteer opportunities as well as committee involvement regarding event planning and execution. We host our own servicing event as well as partner with the Gateway Service District and other surrounding organizations.
