As our flagship volunteer program, Children’s Guild members are a key element to our children’s well-being by bringing joy. They contribute throughout the year by supporting birthdays, a summer book club, and special events like holiday drives, the golf classic, and the annual gala that benefit the children living at Five Acres. Annual dues are $100.

General & Special Events Volunteer

Help during special events, such as our gala, golf tournament, holiday toy drive, and others. Let us know what you have in mind! No annual dues.
