Meetings and Committees
Meetings are held in September, October, November, February, April and May. Options for working directly with clients and staff include serving on a committee or volunteering at the Family Support Center with children in the crisis shelter. Members may also participate in several internal committees such as the newsletter or the wish list.

Fundraising
Fundraising events include the Angel Fund Patrons Drive and the Spring Luncheon. Each is coordinated by a committee of Auxiliary members. The thousands of dollars raised each year provide funds for refurbishing CB facilities, sending kids to summer camp, assisting with special client needs, and staff education.
