CMAA is a community-based social services agency that provides afterschool youth programs, English proficiency and financial literacy lessons, job skill training, as well as a plethora of other opportunities for the immigrant and low-income community.

For this upcoming event, CMAA will be throwing a holiday party for the children. To keep the youth engaged, they would like us to help set up and run 3-4 arts and crafts stations. We understand that since the event goes from 3PM – 6PM, it may conflict with work. However, Margaret from CMAA has given approval for volunteers to arrive late to their shifts, so please still sign up if you are interested in helping!

Sign up deadline is December 14th. We hope to see you there.
