SHAW Community Outreach Program

October 15, 2013
Hi SHAW Families!
My name is Tala Clark and I am a Mite and Squirt mom. I am the coordinator of the SHAW Community Outreach program. The purpose of program is to: 1) Give back to the communities that we hail from, 2) teach our children the importance of volunteering, 3) Build team relationships and bonds outside of the rink, 4)Get to know fellow SHAW members, 5) Get SHAW's name out in the community in a positive light.
Over the summer I was busy putting together some volunteer opportunities for us to participate in as a group. Sometimes the groups will be small and might only be for a specific age, while other times they could, potentially, incorporate the whole organization. All volunteering done through the Community Outreach Program is done on your own time and does NOT count toward your SHAW volunteer commitment. However, your heart will grow two sizes! ;)
