CDC depends on volunteer support to stretch services and community activities. Aside from needing help for our annual Fish Fry, you could become involved with any number of areas from the local Special Olympics groups to consumer outings.
We are grateful for any support – whether general or specific such as building workstation fixtures. It all helps meet our mission.
