Why do we fundraise?
In addition to our registration fees (with CHWC), we also have a number of transportation costs and overall trip expenses. Fundraising also allows us to keep the costs lower for each person registering AND support those who are in need of a scholarship.

What if I am unable to attend one of the fundraising dates?
Our fundraising efforts impact everyone. So, if you are unable to make it to any of the fundraising dates, we ask that you (1) find a substitute to fill in for you or (2) work a double shift on another fundraising date. If you do not find a sub or work a double shift, you will be charged a $50 non-participation fee. We will NOT be accepting monetary donations in place of fundraising time/efforts as these events are part of your commitment to the service opportunity as a whole. Please let Alex O’Sullivan know when conflicts arise and keep open communication!

If I fundraised last year, do I still need to fundraise this year?
Yes. Fundraising is still mandatory. The fundraising from last year allows us to fundraise LESS this year, but does not allow us to forgo fundraising altogether. Thank you in advance for your time and energy!

Who is invited to go to CHWC? 
First, those who have saved their 2020 or 2021 spots! And now, registration is also open to all SPX teens entering high school next fall! REGISTRATION LINK (CLICK HERE)

I am interested in CHAPERONING CHWC – what should I know?
Wonderful! We are looking for adult chaperones for our 2022 work week! Chaperones DO NOT PAY A REGISTRATION FEE. If you are interested, please reach out and let Alex O’Sullivan know or simply fill out the registration form and identify yourself as a chaperone.

How do I set up a payment plan or apply for / receive a scholarship?

Half Scholarships – You Pay $150 | Full Scholarships – You Pay $50

What if CHWC 2022 is canceled?
