The holiday season is coming, is your family looking for a way to give back together? Volunteering together as a family benefits your family, your community, and the world. Family volunteering is a way to show kindness, teach compassion, good citizenship and community responsibility. It provides quality family time, builds relationships and creates fond memories.
