Every family has a squabble from time to time. But on Nov. 19, we set aside our differences (even those rivalries over whose sports team is better) to participate in National Family Volunteer Day.
This service day reminds us that we are stronger as a team. Moms, dad, siblings and cousins, among others, are invited to get together for a good cause in their communities.
Held one week before Thanksgiving, National Family Volunteer Day encourages us to count our blessings and reflect on the many ways we can make a difference—and the many good deeds others are doing to make Utah a wonderful place to live.
While this one day per year is set aside for this purpose, there’s no reason to limit your family to just one day. Try finding ways to be involved in your communities together all year long. You can find a project to help out on, share the story of your volunteer experience and also find out more about why it’s such a good idea to volunteer as a family by visiting the National Family Volunteer Day website.
