Calendar of Events

Events run seamlessly and future events can be offered due to C.H.I.L.D. Friends & Supporters.

Volunteers are a big part of that.  Helping in any way is always appreciated and needed.  

 

High School Students - Colleges are looking beyond your SAT scores.  They want to see more community service involvement of possible incoming students.  Employers are also eager to know how in your community you have made a measurable difference and commitment.  High School Students that help The C.H.I.L.D. Organization earn letters of recognition for their service to be included with their college portfolios.  Written references for schools and employers are also provided for High School Student Volunteers.

To find out how you can be a C.H.I.L.D. Friend or Volunteer call us at 908.322.4020.
