Principal's Points


Community service strengthens relationships & builds character

Busy family life can disconnect parents and children from each other—and from the community. Volunteering as a family is a great way to change that. It also teaches children about responsibility, compassion, generosity and more!
When making summer plans, try to squeeze in a few volunteer activities. Your family might:

  • Clean a favorite spot. Inspect places your family spends time, such as your street, a park or the beach. You may be surprised by how much trash and debris is there. Supervise as your family fills garbage and recycling bags.
  • Provide shelter. Many groups build or improve housing for others. Find one that welcomes kids’ help. Your child might sweep, carry items or hand out nails while you hammer.
  • Provide food. Community food banks are usually in need of groceries and helpers. Homeless shelters and meal-delivery programs often need supplies. Your child may be able to collect food and supplies or even make sandwiches.
  • Care for animals. Call an animal shelter to learn about its needs. If you and your child can’t work directly with pets, consider other ideas, such as raising awareness about animal adoption.
  • Make visits. Find a charity that serves elderly or homebound citizens. They may need company, meals or help with errands. A visit from a child may be more uplifting than anything else.
