The holidays are all about having fun with the family, overeating and celebrating, but in the midst of all the revelry, it’s important to remember the less fortunate in our community. At Fun-E Farm in Kingston, NY, we think it’s a great idea to teach your little ones about giving this time of year. Getting your kids involved in volunteer effort this Thanksgiving can help them learn a valuable lesson and help those in need at the same time.
Check out a few easy ways to give back to your community with your kids this holiday season, and make sure to bring them to the Fun-E Farm afterward to reward their selfless hard work!
Family-Friendly Volunteer Opportunities
- Gather Nonperishables for the Food Bank – We all have canned goods and other nonperishables sitting in the cabinet. Instead of letting your cans of soup collect dust, have your kids help you decide what to give away. You can make it fun by decorating the donation bag before dropping your donation off at the regional food bank in Kingston!
- Give Animals Some Love – Giving during the holidays doesn’t only have to be about people. You can help your elderly neighbors by volunteering to take their dog for a walk. You and the kids can also volunteer at a local animal shelter or give food, treats, and dog toys as a donation.
- Throw a Fundraiser Party at the Fun-E Farm! – Sometimes the best thing you can do is give cash donations to organizations who are doing great work. At the Fun-E Farm, we are fully equipped to host your fundraiser for charitable causes. This is a great way to make community service a ton of fun!
