#1 – Volunteer
You can volunteer to help out on May 4, 2019, the day of the PieceWalk, or make a more significant commitment to participate by being on the PieceWalk Steering Committee. This is a serious commitment, but is also very rewarding! The PieceWalk is our annual signature event and funds programs for thousands of families affected by autism in our state. The PieceWalk committee meets monthly for about two hours with homework assignments between the meetings. We have jobs of all sizes, so whether you have a few hours or a whole lot to give, you will have a great time! Come be part of our PieceWalk family!
