Volunteering as part of the Kidney Health Red Socks Appeal is a fantastic way to give back. You get to support and work with your local community, build friendships, learn new skills and have a lot of fun all while making a difference. Each person who shares this experience can take pride in knowing they are working to support families impacted by kidney disease. You can volunteer by yourself or gather a group of family and friends.
