Volunteer Event and Awareness Resources

May is Williams Syndrome Awareness Month, but you can help promote awareness or plan/host an event any time.

If you would like to help promote WS Awareness and are looking for information, you have come to the right place! 

There are many opportunities for getting involved, from hosting a Walk for Williams to bake sales or library displays! You can also tell stories on social media and hold fundraisers that way. Whether you are a parent, friend, sibling or neighbor of an individual with Williams syndrome, the role you play makes a difference. Thank you for your interest, for your support of the WS community and for helping promote Williams Syndrome Awareness!
