Although we have awesome staff members who ensure operations are running smoothly and moving forward CCCC would not be able to serve those in need without the assistance of our dedicated volunteers. Last fiscal year 1,572 unique individuals volunteered at CCCC (including the Chandler and Gilbert Senior Centers) giving a total of 32,598 volunteer hours. 808 came in the form of group members from area businesses, organizations, and faith based communities. Many thanks to all who help us fulfill our mission!
