National Family Volunteer Day is November 22nd!!

Want to spend more "quality time" with the family? Calling all kids, moms and dads, grandparents and great-grandparents! Lead by example and bring your entire family out and volunteer. Family Volunteer Day, on November 22nd, is a meaningful and inspiring day of national family volunteerism, where everyone will be able to contribute to a variety of tasks.

It is a hands-on way to teach children the values of kindness, compassion, tolerance, community responsibility and good citizenship. HandsOn Network, generated by Points of Light Institute and The Walt Disney Company proudly presents Family Volunteer Day. This annual day of service, held on 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 strengthens communication and bonds and positively impacts local communities across the nation. Visit for details on how to fully capture the value of this opportunity!
