Playground Construction Volunteers

Our volunteers are the backbone of our organization, and there is a reason we call them Smile Angels.  Their valiant efforts allow us to bring countless smiles to our MDS children and families. Each of our Smile Angels contributes in their own special way. Whether it’s arriving early on a Saturday morning to help build a playground, contributing to our fundraising efforts or volunteering at an event, our volunteers always show up with a smile and the willingness to contribute.  

Please join our Smile Angels team.  Just fill out the email form below and let us know how you would like to help.
