Volunteer Opportunities at Chapter Fundraiser Events


RMHC-CNI hosts tons of fundraising events throughout the year to raise vital funds to help keep our families together. Without our volunteers, these events wouldn’t be possible. Looking into 2013, we’re looking for volunteers to help us at the following fundraising events. Volunteers will help sell raffle tickets, run registration, face paint, monitor competitions, ref a basketball game,  and much much more! We have opportunities for every kind of volunteer!
