If you belong to a corporate or community group that engages in volunteer opportunities, we have many ways in which your team can help. Our volunteer groups make an immeasurable impact on the children and teens we serve. Learn more about the opportunities below.
Help at an Event
CCA’s programs are fueled by fundraising events throughout the year. Tournaments, festivals, and galas are just a few examples of the fun events that rely on your volunteer support. We can accommodate many group sizes at our event volunteering opportunities.

Group Size: 5-15

Feeling crafty? Visit our office (or we’ll come to you!) and macramé away to create handmade friendship bracelets for us to share with kids and families in the hospital, volunteers and donors as thank you gifts, and to give away at events to raise awareness about CCA. No artistic ability or bracelet-making experience required!
