November is Family Volunteering

Family Volunteer Day, Sponsored by the Points of Light Foundation

November 19, 2016 is Family Volunteer Day
Family Volunteer Day is a day of service that celebrates the power of families who work together to support their communities and neighborhoods. Volunteering is a great way for kids and adults to make new friends, develop compassion for their neighbors, and even pick up a new skill or two! It’s an amazing day – don’t miss out on this incredible opportunity!
Care Bags for our OKC Homeless. A Casady sophomore filled backpacks with water bottles, socks, Bibles, tissue, rain ponchos, gum, hand sanitizer and a few other things.  She and her family handed the care bags to homeless people in the downtown area.

November and December
Due to an increase in production needs, the Food Bank has opened additional volunteer shifts and added space to many of their existing shifts for November and December.  They need to produce 108,000 Food for Kids backpack kits in the month of November, and they can’t do it without YOUR/OUR help!

Click here to view our extended November schedule or our extended December schedule and sign up for a shift.  If you’d like to bring a group, please complete a volunteer group request form.  Questions?  Contact:
