3 Reasons to Volunteer in Florida

Posted by Richard Dimarco Barea on February 18, 2015 at 2:45 PM

Volunteering is a great way to make a difference and connect with others! Informed Families has developed a tight-knit community of hundreds of Prevention Ambassadors in Florida who have served and received the benefits of volunteerism for over 30 years.
