Volunteer Locally

We host events for child patients of the Central Texas Cleft Team and we are always in need of volunteers who enjoy working with children. Most children’s activities are on weekends, although and we occasionally host a weekday event. We hold at least two fundraisers during the year, one in the fall and one in the spring. Our event volunteers help with things like mailings, answering the phone, and various tasks at the events themselves.
