July 16th is our second annual Family Volunteer Day, and we’re very excited. Families of two people or more can volunteer as a group to make a difference in our community, while spending quality time together.

Last year more than 230 people volunteered, and benefited 9 area agencies – this translated to 690 volunteer hours and $15,000 in free labor! It was truly an amazing experience, one we would love to replicate this year, and share with you and your family.

Family volunteering not only benefits the community, but the families involves involved as well. Volunteering opens up opportunities for expanding new skills, promotes a sense of sharing, a healthy lifestyle, and teaches social responsibility, along with encouraging a clear sense of ethics and personal development.

Register by June 15th to participate in this year’s Family Volunteer Day, and spend a wonderful day with your family and ours making a difference. For more questions please email suzette.obrien@uwbec.org.
