The Hope Fund is a 100% volunteer organization helping children in Wimauma or other parts of south county that ask for our help.
All money we raise or are given go for the children or their families in need. We have no salaries. We are a 501c-3 organization in Sun City Center.
We help children have a better life through education and enrichment activities. Our web site is: www.thehopefundscc.org
Our programs all done by volunteers include: mentors, tutors, readers and chess players all one on one with a child K through 5th grade. Small group programs are Creative Art, Second Step Program (physical, mental and emotional development) and Drugs, Human Trafficking and Bullying. We also have a Kids Marathon (good health–exercise). We are always looking for mentors, tutors, readers and chess players. We also welcome people with new program ideas.
WHAT DOES A VOLUNTEER DO?
