With the holiday season upon us, it’s a great time for the entire family to join in a day of giving and service to help their less fortunate neighbors. On Saturday, November 22, the City of O’Fallon is hosting National Family Volunteer Day, a day of service that demonstrates and celebrates the power of families who volunteer together to support their neighborhoods and communities.

As part of National Family Volunteer Day, and with support from generationOn and Disney Friends for Change, families are invited to spend the morning helping to strengthen our community, while also strengthening themselves.  Volunteering together as a family provides quality time, strengthens family communication, and provides opportunities for family members to be role models to their children and others.

Funding for the program will come from a $5,000 allocation from the City’s annual Community Development Block Grant, and the program will be offered as long as funding allows.
