How to Volunteer
The EAS Charity Committee is currently looking for new members. We meet once a month. The Charity Committee is responsible for allocating funds raised through our various charity events. We support monthly purchasing of diapers and milk/supplies for Tiger Hill and Wuzhong orphanages. The committee supports local migrant schools, Sharing the Sunshine organization, local surgeries for children and some adults, and many other wonderful charities. If you are interested in making a difference in the lives of children and adults in the Suzhou area come join the EAS Charity committee. Please contact the Charity Committee at firstname.lastname@example.org
We are also looking for new and deserving charities to support in the Suzhou area. If you have suggestions, please contact Tracy Greene, EAS Charity Committee Chairperson at email@example.com
If you would like to help out at an orphanage for a few hours on a regular basis,along with a group of like-minded ladies, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org This is a wonderful and heartwarming activity, which is very rewarding for EAS members and the children.
