Throughout the 2006-2007 school year, Children for Children (CFC) will offer many large youth service events. The three special events featured here encourage young people and their families to serve in their community, keeping with CFC’s mission of fostering in young people a strong sense of community involvement and social responsibility through programs that involve youth in volunteering from an early age.  Each of the following events are open to the public.  Refreshments are provided.  For more information, please call 212.708.0200.
