I have volunteered at many events with the CAN Council and served on a committee and there is not a group I enjoy volunteering for more. They are extremely appreciative and flexible and they take good care of their volunteers. Their passion for children and ending child abuse is visible in everything they do and when you volunteer you can see how giving an hour or two of your time can make a difference in reaching parents and children. There is no drama (I've volunteered with other groups where this is not the case) and all their events are extremely organized and not haphazard. I am delighted that I have the opportunity to volunteer with them
