Sherwood depends on the generous donations of the community it serves. Through fundraising and donations by individuals, we are able to provide our broad range of services.

Donate Your Money

We rely on the generous support of the community to help us reach our goals.

Donate Your Time

Each year, Sherwood utilizes over 500 volunteers who work 2000+ hours helping out around our buildings. This year alone, 150 volunteers participated in the CFC Day of Caring and worked all day, in the rain, to help us clean, paint, weed and cut back trees. 

We host an annual Blues & BBQ event that uses over 100 volunteers to set-up, clean-up, sell tickets, or work the beer truck.

Volunteer Opportunities
