Family Volunteer Day Is November 17

Change Your Community Through Acts of Kindness and Volunteer Service!

Family Volunteer Day is a global day of service that celebrates the power of families who work together to support their communities and neighborhoods. It's a great way to be inspired by the power of helping others. Bring your family together and make your mark on the world. Don’t miss out on this incredible opportunity!

Families inspire by example. Talk to your child about what is most important to them. Then think of a nonprofit where your child has expressed their passions and figure out what you can do to help OR start your own drive. 

Some ideas can be to do a collection drive with friends, family, and neighbors:
