Family Volunteer Day
Saturday, November 23, 2013
10:00 a.m.-1:00 p.m.
Children's Museum of Denver
Family Volunteer Day, a Points of Light signature day of service, demonstrates and celebrates the power of families who volunteer together, supporting their neighborhoods, communities and the world. For 22 years, Family Volunteer Day has been held on the Saturday before Thanksgiving to “kick-off” the holiday season with giving and service.
Family volunteering encourages the members of a family to volunteer as a unit. It can be done by the whole family together, by one parent and one child or teen, or with extended family such as grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins. It can be as simple as creating cards for children in the hospital or as complex as bonding hundreds of families together in a day of service at a community park. However families choose to do it, families engaged in service can help mobilize thousands of new volunteers and instill in the next generation a lifelong commitment to volunteering.
In the spirit of this commitment, Metro Volunteers wants you and your family to volunteer with us! In addition to having service projects on-site, we have brought together more than 15 nonprofits that offer family volunteer opportunities year-round. This is a great opportunity to do a good deed while learning more about what you can do as a family in the future.
