Fellow Federationists,

November 22, 2014, was Family Volunteer Day. 
According to Points of Light, the creator of 
Family Volunteer Day, “Families that volunteer 
together not only address community social 
problems, but also strengthen themselves. 
Volunteering together as a family provides 
quality time, strengthens family communication 
and provides opportunities for family members to 
be role models” 

Did you volunteer with your family on Family 
Volunteer Day? Even if you didn’t, do you and 
your family regularly volunteer somewhere in the 
community? If so, we want to hear about it!

The Community Service Division is seeking 
articles for its blog about families who 
volunteer together. What kinds of projects do you 
do? Why did you start volunteering together as a 
family? How has volunteering brought you closer 
as a family? If you volunteered on Family 
Volunteer Day, where did you go and what did you 
do? These are just some ideas for things you could write about.

The specifics: Send your story as an attachment 
or in the body of a message to me at 
Christine-parsons at sbcglobal.net. Stories should 
be no more than 500 words. Be sure to include 
your name, state, and a title for your story. I 
look forward to reading about how you and your 
family get involved and give back!

Chris Parsons
Vice President, National Federation of the Blind Community Service Division
