I've talked about teaching kids and giving back to those in need in the past. We've participated in toy, food, and fundraising efforts with our kids. But we've never had a chance to volunteer anywhere. My oldest is getting to be old enough now that she can start coming with us to volunteer. So we are planning on participating in Family Volunteer Day.
Family Volunteer Day is held on the Saturday before Thanksgiving to “kick-off” the holiday season with giving and service. This year, Family Volunteer Day takes place on Saturday, November 21. It's a day of service that celebrates the power of families who work together to support their neighbors and neighborhoods. This year generationOn and Disney Friends for Change are rallying thousands of families and kids across the country for the 25th annual Family Volunteer Day on Saturday, November 21.
generationOn is a great organization from Points of Light, focused on teaching and inspiring kids to make their mark on the world through service and leadership development. The end of the year is always super busy so generationOn makes it easy and fun to get involved even in little ways.
This year we want to get involved with a local food bank to help serve or distribute meals to those in need for Thanksgiving. It's something my husband and daughter have expressed interest in and I think it would be the perfect thing for our family to help out on together.
