Family Volunteer Day, A Success
Family Voluteer Day 2013
The Volunteer Center of Cedar Valley sponsored a morning of service for families on November 23 from 9 – 11 a.m. in the Community Center at Orange Elementary School in Waterloo. Families learned the joy of serving others as they made fleece blankets for children in hospitals, frosted cookies for the Salvation Army, wrote letters to veterans, made bird feeders for the elderly, and created pet toys for the Humane Society. Attendees were also asked bring a gently used book to donate to a shelter for families.
The event was successful. Jean Seeland, Program Coordinator at the Volunteer Center of Cedar Valley commented, "I'm a firm believer that children learn best at an early age. Hopefully, they'll continue volunteering when they're adults."
The Volunteer Center of Cedar Valley offers over 190 local volunteer opportunities from 108 nonprofit agencies. Volunteer opportunities may also be accessed at www.vccv.org.
