In honor of the day, Volunteer Spot which is an awesome website for those of us who have ever tried to organize a classroom holiday party or a Cub Scout field trip, has put out a free eBook on Family Friendly Volunteering. It’s filled with fun, simple ideas literally from A to Z, that you and your kids can do together to give back to the community starting with A for Animal Shelter, B for Book Drive, and C for Children in Need. My son and I spent an afternoon gathering up picture books to donate that he has outgrown. Easy.
And in case I forget to call you Saturday, Happy National Family Volunteer Day! —Betsy
