Family Service Project- Adults and youth working together! by Kelly Noftz

Following Project Cornerstone’s 6 week Take It Personally study group at Eisenhower Elementary School, 5 families decide to continue their asset building by scheduling a Family Service project to join forces as asset builders for their own kids, for each other’s kids and for the larger community. Prior to a potluck dinner “meeting”, the Service Project Champion of the group researched options at:  www.volunteermatch.org

She chose the following ideas to present to the group:

Environment: Habitat restoration: http://rei-redwoodgrove-eorg.eventbrite.com/

Packaging food at Tri-city volunteers food bank: http://www.volunteermatch.org/search/opp861028.jsp

Make a difference to seniors near you: http://www.volunteermatch.org/search/opp1073223.jsp

The group decided to go with the Food Bank option and scheduled a weekend Service Project for their families.  Here is a link to a short video clip to get a sense of what it is like. http://www.youtube.com/user/TriCityVolunteers?feature=guide
