For a small organization there’s always something happening!

Although COVID-19 put in-person fundraising events on hold, we hope we can start seeing you face-to-face at events soon! Fundraising events take place year-round and come in all different shapes and sizes. At the same time we have campaigns launching, partnerships being made, and of course Dreams being filled! We are always so grateful for the time, energy and passion that our supporters share with us. You can catch up with all the latest news stories about Help Fill A Dream and our important work here, as well as look back at past campaigns and stories from the media.
