Outreach



Bag of Hope

Outreach supports the newly diagnosed in our community. Our most recent project is to match up more experienced families with those that are newly diagnosed, matching the ages of children as closely as possible. If you or your child would like to take part in this project to help the newly diagnosed, please email Barb Garrison at bgarrison@jdrf.org
