Pause Virtual Hangouts
- This is where a volunteer is paired with a kiddo whose main goal will be to spend quality time having fun! The kiddo will pick an activity out of a list of options (or they can create their own option), we will order and ship/deliver the supplies to both the child and volunteer and then they will meet virtually through Zoom based on an agreed time that works for both the family and volunteer.
Sound fun? What to see a video of how this works? Send us an email and we will get you set up!
Pause Virtual Fundraising
- Are you passionate about fundraising? You've found just the place! We love to hear fresh ideas about creative ways to gather funds. You have the ability to create and see through a fundraising opportunity! Feel free to send us an email with your interest.

- We always have administrative tasks or other small projects that greatly support our program in our "virtual office." Reach out to us and we will use your talents to help us complete an ongoing project.
