Give your dad the gift of volunteering this Father's Day! This Sunday is Father's Day, and what better way to spend time with your father than by volunteering with your dad! Here are 4 ways to volunteer with your dad on father's day!
- Celebrate Father's Day by volunteering with your kids at a community garden. This is a great way to spend the day outdoors doing community service while bonding with your friends & family. You and your dad can plant seeds, turn compost, and dig in the dirt. Remember to bring all your banana peels, apple cores, any rotting lettuce you forgot was in the refrigerator, tops of carrots or peppers that you cut from your dinner preparations, and coffee grounds from your breakfast to also help feed the compost system.
- Celebrate all the fathers in your community by delivering donuts! That's right, donuts are the ultimate comfort food and a pleasant way to say thank you to all the dads in your neighborhood. I'm pretty sure they'll love this simple treat this father's day.
- Looking for a way to have fun and do good at the same time? Do a Father's Day 5K and 10K race. Volunteer opportunities include: Registration, Split Timers - calling out times to runners as they pass by your assigned mile marker, Water Stop - fill cups of water, hand to runners, clap and cheer, clean up dropped cups after race, be race course marshals by providing clear directions to keep runners on course, clap and cheer. At the finish line, you and your father can decorate, keep runners moving across the finish line, clap and cheer! Or you all can volunteer at the refreshment table by setting up food and drinks at the finish line for runners.
- Volunteer at a sports event! Many organizations are throwing Father's Day fundraisers in the form of sports tournaments and events. Whether it's a softball tournament, golf tournament, baseball tournament, etc, volunteer opportunities include, help with decorations, distributing materials, providing decorations, or simply donating money to the organization and participating in the actual event. Volunteering at sporting events is a fun way to spend time with your father on his special day!
