The purpose for the Family Volunteer Day is an opportunity for families to spend time together and participate in volunteer projects that make a difference. Families with children ages 5-yrs and up are invited to participate in our Holiday Card Project followed by a time of fun, fellowship and family in the Levy park/garden that is on site outside the building.

Description of Volunteer Project and Activities
“The Holiday Project”

Creating Cards: Volunteers will create; color and design holiday gift cards as part of “The Holiday Project”.
The Holiday Project's central function is to organize volunteer visits to shut-ins at hospitals, nursing homes, and other institutions. It is perhaps best known for its annual Christmas Day visits, but many chapters sponsor visits on other selected dates throughout the year. The Holiday Project provides a way to let these persons know that they have not been forgotten and to brighten their lives by brightening their day!

Familytime In The Park: Pack your family lunch, bring a blanket or lawn chairs and enjoy a family picnic in the park! After the card making project, families are invited to gather in our nice park and garden area located outside in the back of the building to enjoy their lunch picnic style and join other families for some fun activities.

If your family would like to participate in this volunteer project, please register by completing Signup Form below and clicking the "Submit" button. The deadline to sign up is: Friday, Nov. 9th!

We are asking for families to consider bringing a canned food item or an unwrapped toy to be donated to local charities that assist those in need during the holiday season.
