On Saturday, November 18, 2017 the Volunteer Center will be asking families in south Wood County to get out and volunteer together as a family! According to the Points of Light Foundation “Family Volunteer Day is a day of service that celebrates the power of families who work together to support their communities and neighborhoods.” In south Wood County, families can view our website at www.volunteerinnerwisc.org to find ideas. We have a variety of different volunteer opportunities to choose from that are perfect for families. Opportunities range from stay-at-home projects such as creating “Shoebox Projects” and donating them to local agencies; to getting out and decorating an agency for the holidays. Families can also check out the volunteer opportunities at their churches or schools. Families who wish to volunteer on – or around – November 18th should plan ahead, as many agencies have a volunteer application process. The Volunteer Center is not coordinating any projects, but can make suggestions and help your family decide on a project. Families need to volunteer together (adults cannot drop off their kids and leave); especially since smaller children will need to be supervised.
