4 people are interested
Rukundo International will be hosting our Eighth Annual Silent Auction on October 16th, 2021. We need volunteers willing to acquire items for our online silent auction.
We are seeking motivated individuals to visit DMV businesses and request donations, utilizing a standard form, which we will provide to you. Many businesses are happy to help because not only are donations are tax deductible, but it's also a great marketing opportunity. Guidance and training, as well as ongoing support, will be provided.
100% of the funds raised from any items acquired will go towards supporting our educational and empowerment programs in rural Uganda.
