Summer Love: General

June 2nd - August 31st, 2017

Come be a part as we work towards our goal of 15,000 volunteer hours this summer!

The hours are adding up! But, we can't do it without you. Everyone makes a difference.

There is SOMETHING you can do.

 1)  Join in on an event here by registering.
 2)  Invite someone else to  serve with you.
 3)  Connect with the Team Lead of the event
     48 hours prior to the event.
 4)  Have fun spreading the love.

Extra That Anyone Can Do: Clean up your community. Gather friends, go for a walk and pick up trash in your community while wearing a Summer Love or Champions Tshirt . You can actually give out that 'Lovin Feelin' wherever you go. (Our Champions Foundation Instagram or Champions Foundation Facebook page to read the story of Jerry and Anne who did just that on Mercer Island)

Spread the love by using the Hashtag #cfSummerLove

When you are serving, enclose a picture and tell us who the volunteers are that are joining you and let us know the total time (hrs) by emailing us at info@championsfoundation.com.

About The Rescue Mission: This is just one area of the Rescue Mission that serves over 1,000 meals each day. These meals represent hope and life to those coming through their doors. We know that a meal is often where relationships begin with volunteers and staff – relationships that we hope will eventually lead someone to enter into the recovery programs and change their life, for good!
This is the why we do what we do.
