Community Ambassador Program 

Rosemead & Duarte

Whether delivering a truckload of turkeys or holding a sock drive for Maryvale's children, there are endless ways for supporters to get involved through our Community Ambassador Program. As an ambassador, you will reach out to the community and seek donations for our children. Take a look at the superheroes featured on our Superheroes page to get some ideas! Our website also has a "wish list" of items that are always needed. 

If you are interested, please contact Roxxi Bartlett (rbartlett@maryvale.org) for details.

This program is open to all, including children, adults, families and companies!
