This annual day of service, held the Saturday before Thanksgiving, is designed to demonstrate the power of families who choose to volunteer together to support the communities in which they live and serve. Volunteering as a family provides quality time for busy families and strengthens communication and family bonds that positively impacts local communities across the nation.
This year Family Volunteer Day will take place on Saturday, November 19th.
