Join Us for Family Volunteer Day on November 19th!10:59 AM
This post is part of a sponsored campaign for Family Volunteer Day. I received compensation for my participation, but my review and opinions are my own.
Families are busy. I totally get it. In a week when we have had a fire at our farm, in-laws in town visiting, Halloween, and a brief case of the stomach flu, it may seem like there is no room in our lives for another thing. Especially something that seems so involved -- like volunteering!
In truth, volunteering isn't disruptive. It doesn't have to take a big chunk out of your life. And it can be therapeutic for a stressed-out family who may have had their priorities offline for some time.
The upcoming Family Volunteer Day on November 19th is the perfect time to reflect on how you can give back, even in the midst of today's modern, stressed-out life. It is the 26th year for this event, and it's just what this world needs to get together and lend a helping hand. Powered by generationON, the youth division of Points of Light (the largest organization in the world dedicated to volunteer service) and sponsored by The Walt Disney Company, it's sure to change the way we view things today -- especially in light of a kind of stressful season in everyone's life
There are some easy ways for your family to get involved. Some don't take as much time as you would think! They include:
- Spending time at a local food bank sorting food
- Making cards for our military men and women (something we do!)
- Planting extra in your garden and giving the produce to the food bank
