Remote Volunteering

Remote Volunteering
  • We need graphic artists to help us with t-shirt designs, art work to sell, and a line of educational cartoons we want to get started.

  • Crafts to sell via our auction page on Facebook.  Click Here for the link.

  • Online fundraising – it takes a lot to keep us going financially.  If this is your skill, we need you.

  • If you have some other skill that can be done remotely, we are all ears.  We have a few people in other states that help us regularly.  We would love to expand our remote volunteer team!
