Top Volunteer Activities for the Family

Monday, June 26, 2017

Volunteering as a family has the potential to strengthen relationships and give everyone an added respect for those around them. While kids may want to hit the beach or relax on the couch, summer is the perfect time to get outside and better your community. When you’re looking for something to do this summer that helps you give back to your community, check out these great activities!

ALSF-Registered Lemonade Stand

Nothing says summer quite like a lemonade stand. The summer staple serves two purposes: provides a refreshing drink and supports the Alex Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF). Help raise funds for child cancer research and give your community a little taste of summer.

Meals on Wheels

Are you looking to give back to the senior community? Consider helping out with Meals on Wheels. Bring your kids with you while delivering meals to seniors. This gives them a chance to bond with the seniors and show them how rewarding being a volunteer can be.

Animal Shelters

The largest no-kill animal shelter may be in Southern Utah, but shelters across the country offer programs where kids can interact with the shelter’s animals through enjoyable and educational activities.
