On the community service page, you will find short term opportunities as well as a newly beefed-up events calendar that now goes through July.
Talk to your kids about the benefits of volunteer service and lead them to the page. Events are not necessarily day-of opportunities - lots of them need promotion, planning, logistics, or help with training.
