Volunteer Committees & Opportunities - Volunteers make CCFA the successful Foundation it is. We have planning committees for Take Steps, the Benefit Luncheon and our Casino Night and we would love to have you join us. Looking for less of a commitment? We need office and event day volunteers as well. Click here to view all of our volunteer opportunities. Contact Kelsi Messling at email@example.com.
