We also partner with the Soccer for Success Program who brings a health, nutrition and active component to the program!


Special Event Team

Each year, Hand in Hand hosts several events that require many volunteers. Picnics, Christmas Parties, and fundraisers are successful because of volunteers who get involved with the event preparation, promotions, sponsorship, food, set up/tear down, etc.
