Family-Friendly Volunteering

This post was highly requested in our community, which I just love. You want your children to give back to the community and experience giving time and resources for someone else…that is beautiful 🤍 Some of my own favorite memories are of volunteering with my parents: riding Meals on Wheels routes, buying gifts for Angel Tree recipients, and visiting nursing home residents. I treasure those memories, but I also understand how hard it is to find places that accept young children as volunteers

Tada! I have the list for you!
Each of these organizations verified they welcome families for volunteer work. I’ve included the specified age ranges, the type of help most commonly needed, and the best contact info.

This list is by no means complete. I suggest also reaching out to your local
❤️Meals on Wheels chapter
❤️Public library
❤️Nursing homes and assisted living facilities
❤️Room in the Inn providers

One of our own Frecklefaced Friends, Shelby, pastors South End UMC which participates in Room in the Inn. She would love your family’s help cooking and sharing a meal with the guests who stay with them. To contact her, email

Help add to this list by commenting with your favorite family-friendly volunteering spot
