Volunteer Center of North Texas hopes that you'll join us on Saturday, November 17, in honor of National Family Volunteer Day. VCNT is partnering with Wee Volunteer to engage more than 150 volunteers in a variety of service opportunities. Families can impact nearly any issue that is close to their hearts, from homelessness to environmentalism, animals to senior citizens.
National Family Volunteer Day a Points of Light signature day of service, demonstrates and celebrates the power of families who volunteer together to support their neighborhoods, communities and the world. Held annually the Saturday before Thanksgiving, National Family Volunteer Day kicks off the holiday season of giving and service as well as the start of National Family Week (November 18-24). Families that volunteer together not only address community social problems, but also strengthen themselves. Volunteering together as a family provides quality time, strengthens family communication and provides opportunities for family members to be role models. National Family Volunteer Day is powered by generationON and sponsored by Disney Friends For Change, a global initiative that inspires kids and families to take action to help people, communities and the planet.
