Q: Does the Human Response Network have any signature events?

A: The event perhaps most widely recognized is the Annual Children's Festival held in Weaverville's Lowden Park, the Saturday after Mother's Day.  This no-fee activity brings together many service providers, clubs, and groups with children's activities, music, low-cost food, and more.  The annual Children's Shoe Fund Campaign is a fundraiser held in February to collect money for the Children's School Shoes Fund, a program that provides one pair of new shoes to school age children from low-income families.  We offer bi-annual Domestic Violence Education courses and one Sexual Assault Education course for those who are interested in volunteering on the HELP-line.
