 View our NON PROFIT WISH LIST to see how you can help different organizations. It changes monthly.

 

 You may not be able to help the whole world, but you can make a difference in your own community.   --Elizabeth P. Carter

 


 

See the list below of non-profits that could use more volunteers! We believe in families giving back to their community by volunteering their time and making donations. Families can make a difference in their community without it necessarily being a big time commitment or expense.

 

 

Parents set an example for their children by demonstrating different ways to give, whether donating toys and clothes or by helping serve meals during the holidays. You will be modeling empathy and compassion. Below are ways parents and kids can give back to our community.  Click here to submit your own.
