As part of our mission to inspire and empower kids to take action in their communities, we occasionally forward information about local or national events or projects taking place.

We get quite a few requests regarding volunteer opportunities around the holidays and have included a few great ones below that address different causes and are fun for the whole family.

Happy Holidays!
