The WCFR 2013 Events & Activities calendar was developed to raise awareness of, promote and raise funds for WCFR. These events and activities are open to all of those, who have a genuine desire to support WCFR’s mission to “prevent deaths worldwide through education and training.”

  • On Saturday, January 19th, 2013 (MLK Day of Service), over 25 volunteers conducted short surveys of people along Main Street in Nanuet. Over 200 surveys were collected by our volunteers on that cold winter day. The result of the surveys and other information will be used to identify the most pressing problems, which can be addressed through community action. Click here to view our MLK Day of Service project photos and read our article.
