Caring Kids

Volunteer as a Family!

By volunteering as a family, you are taking an important step toward raising a person who will be sensitive to the needs of others, who will have a head start on the path of giving back to the community, and who will leave the world in a better plan than they found it. Each month, our early learning staff will create a volunteer activity that is age appropriate and engaging for kids 2-5 years old (however, all ages are welcome!). Please note, a parent must accompany their child during the volunteer activity.
