Friends of DePelchin


Friends of DePelchin is a group of young professionals committed to supporting DePelchin’s mission through community awareness, philanthropy and volunteerism.  The funds raised by Friends of DePelchin, through membership and events, directly support the core programs and services of DePelchin Children’s Center. 

In addition, this group organizes networking opportunities, two annual fundraisers and unique volunteer opportunities.
