I love finding volunteer projects that incllude the kids. It's a great way to teach the kids about helping others and a fun way to spend family time.
The Peninsula Jewish Community Center is sponsoring a Family Day of Service on June 6th. They'll be going to the My New Red Shoes warehouse in Santa Clara. If you're not familiar with My New Red Shoes, it's a Bay Area nonprofit that provides new clothing and shoes for 5,000 Bay Area homeless youth. Read more about them here.
I'm not sure what they'll do at the warehouse, but the program is open to kids 4 and older, and adults.
When: June 6, 2010 from 3-5 p.m.
Where: 2400 Cordensa Street, Santa Clara
Cost: $6 for adults, $3 for kids
RSVP: Spots are limited and you need to sign up here or call (650) 212.7522 or stop by the welcome desk at the PJCC and do it in person.
