"Where the Community Connects"

Volunteering w/ Kids

The Howards are a very busy family of four that have found great joy in their hearts by volunteering in their beloved town of Easton and surrounding community.  Elizabeth, a working mother, eagerly wanted her children to volunteer and be involved, but she found it difficult finding time, and committing to just one organization.  So one April vacation, she decided to try them all!  For five days straight, Elizabeth and her children volunteered at five different and unique organizations in the area. This family has learned so much from volunteering and have become so fulfilled by those experiences, that they would like to share their findings and learnings, in the hopes of getting more Easton patrons involved in volunteering for our community.
