About

Thank you so very much for your interest in being a volunteer for Child S.H.A.R.E.’s Family Jam & Expo. On October 1, 2016 we will welcome families from across LA and the San Fernando Valley to our Family Jam & Expo at Woodley Park in Van Nuys to celebrate families and raise foster care awareness. Sadly, there are 18,000 children in foster care in Los Angeles County alone and we need more foster families.

The Family Jam & Expo will feature a free concert along with vendors for families with children of all ages. The day will include live entertainment, food, games, prizes and much more. Here are the volunteer opportunities and the link to register:
