The CMF Youth Department's volunteers go out of their way to positively influence and impact the youth in our hometown. Their hosted events, like Glow Bingo and participation in the MLK Breakfast & Parade, were creative and impressive! I hope they continue to strive to influence our next generation and future leaders! I commend these volunteers for dedicating so much time and effort trying to make a difference, definitely needed, in our area. Kudos & please, keep up the fabulous work! Thanks for being so caring and dedicated! We see it! Mario

Citizens_Moving_Forward_Youth Hey Mario, Aww!! Thank you for your positive reflection! We truly had a blast during all the events you mentioned. Creating our first float for the MLK parade was memorable for sure. We definitely learned some valuable lessons, even if it only took pulling off the road like four times to stop the tarp and all the decorations from flying away...LOL! I'd agree, though,it was worth the efforts. The kids felt famous, throwing out the candy and basketball balls! Also, I'm so glad you mentioned the Glow Bingo!! We had our event center blacked out, where everything seemed to Glow. You could still see kids' faces "light up" when they won a prize, which nearly every participant did. We hope to host another soon. Look on Facebook or our website to stay posted. The next one will be our best one yet! Hope to see you there. Thank you for your support. CMF

CMF volunteers are energetic and determined to positively impact youth in our community. They are constantly fundraising to earn a way to play travel basketball. I’m proud of my friends!

My daughter has had the time of her life, traveling with the Dream Team! They have gone to Tallahassee and Panama City already! She is making life-long friends, learning leadership and responsibility, improving her athletic ability, all while having fun playing basketball! She loves Coach Krispy Kremey Kelly more than any coach she has ever had and has improved more this year, than the previous five years combined! I l truly love the passionate leaders of this group! They dedicate their time, energy, and efforts 100% to our kids! I wish I could have been involved with an organization like this as a child but am thrilled that my daughter, and soon my son, has been given such a fantastic opportunity! I'm so impressed! Thank you CMF, for all the services you provide, the example you set, and the love you give our community's youth.

Hello!
I have known members of the CMF organization for many years. They have always been dedicated to helping others, especially children with disadvantages-socially, economically, and/or educationally, in anyway they can! Their energy and efforts amaze me! Currently, two of my grandchildren have been blessed with the opportunity to play travel basketball without out-of-pocket expenses. Without this organization's help, I would not have been able to provide funding for my grandchildren to participate in these activities. Also, I thoroughly enjoyed participation in the MLK Parade. We all had a wonderful time! I'm very thankful for the CMF Youth coaches, tutors, & mentors! It is clear they love our kids and our community!! I only wish they could have gotten started sooner!!
