I have been volunteering with Fun and Freedom for over seven years and fortunate to watch the positive influence they have had on the lives of children as well as the volunteer staff. We are all encouraged to stretch ourselves in sports, leadership and faith. Its wonderful to see a community come together and support this program in making the facilities available such as school sports fields, auditoriums and gymnasiums.

Fun and Freedom Youth Sports is an awesome nonprofit that serves the youth and families in the surrounding areas. Fun and Freedom provided many opportunities for fun, such as: Summer day camp in June, Saturdays in Natrona, Mission Days, sports clinics throughout the year, Christmas party, and more. I would recommend Fun and Freedom to all!

What better way to invest in our future than provide for our children! Fun and Freedom not only supplies valuable activities for youth in need, it is run by some of the most caring people I know! I urge others to contribute at least a little every month by using your auto-pay banking. Keep this local non-profit in mind when contributing each year and each month.

Fun and Freedom (FAF) is a great organization! It is beneficial for the kids who participate in the numerous sports related activities. Families benefit from the Christmas party, and the back to school back pack program (among other activities sponsored by FAF). Lastly, FAF gives back to the community through the annual mission project, which cleans up the neighborhoods and completes house projects for chosen families. FAF is a worthy, needed organization that positively impacts the community on many levels!

Fun and Freedom offers so much for the children in our local community. They offer youth sports, summer camp, and the ability for children to participate in activities that might not ever have the opportunity. The staff and volunteers are the most amazing people I have ever met. They do so much for every kid, and I wish our community could do more to help them. Thank you Fun and Freedom for all you do. We are Blessed to have you!

They work in Natrona, a very depressed area, and give the kids, and their families, a Christmas dinner with all the trimmings and presents. For many of the families, and children, this is the only Christmas they get.
