As part of their 25th Anniversary, the Friends of the Children’s Justice Center announced the launch of their Summer Volunteer Drive. The goal of the drive is to register 101 volunteers to assist in their efforts of preventing child abuse and neglect in Maui County.
Each year the Friends of the Children’s Justice Center participate in a number of community events and activities designed to prevent child abuse and neglect in Maui County. Paul Tonnessen expects the drive to add to their prevention efforts and increase the organization’s effectiveness throughout the year. “Without the countless community and business volunteers we would not be able to fulfill our vision of ‘Every child in Maui County free from abuse and neglect’.” he stated.
Signing up to volunteer is easy for any Maui resident or visitor. To sign up visit www.mauicjc.org and click on the “Summer Volunteer Drive” link at the top, left of the page. Descriptions for each volunteer opportunity are listed with an easy to use form to provide your information and make your selections. As the event of your choice approaches the Friends will reach out to you for your volunteering service.
The Friends of the Children's Justice Center of Maui (FCJC) is a private, non-profit corporation, founded in 1989 by a non-partisan group of community and business leaders concerned with the social welfare of children and families who have been traumatized by abuse and severe neglect.
