Participate in National Family Volunteer Day this Saturday, November 22nd

Tis' the season of giving, and there's nothing better than volunteering as a family! In celebration of National Family Volunteer Day, Wee Volunteer is hosting the 3rd Annual 60 Minutes of Giving event on Saturday, November 22nd. There are several family-friendly service projects with organizations around the DFW Metroplex to be completed from 10:30am-11:30am.
Once projects have been completed, all participants are invited to Communities Foundation of Texas for an After Party starting at 12:00pm. There will be a photo slideshow, food, activities and fun. Goodwill will also have a donation truck on-site to accept gently used donations.

Get involved with your family and help make a positive impact in the community. Simply giving 6o minutes of your time can make a world of difference!
