Host a Fundraiser Event or Drive

Do you like to plan parties, host events or do fundraising drives? If you have an idea on how you can help us grow our reach and raise money or goods for our clients, then we’d like to hear from you! Hosting a fundraiser is fun for schools, church groups, employee bonding events, and community building. Contact our Marketing Director, Cynthia Corpuz, at ccorpuz@projectwehope.com.

Other Opportunities

Do you have a special talent, skill that you can offer once or twice a month? Or do you want to volunteer your time to teach our clients a unique life skill? Project WeHOPE is looking for volunteers who can lend their talents in a multitude of ways, both with the clients or with our administrative staff.
