DC Homeschool Service Opportunity
When my kids were younger, one of our favorite activities was serving together at a local organization that provided meals to those in need. It gave my family an opportunity to gain understanding of the needs of others and the ability to tangibly meet those needs with compassion and kindness. I am so excited to announce that we have found a local organization with whom to partner allowing DC Homeschool families to serve together to address the needs of our community. Susan Ebert and I recently had the opportunity to meet staff at Helping Hands in Miamisburg. Helping Hands has served the city of Miamisburg for over 50 years by providing groceries to its residents in need. This organization, primarily staffed by volunteers from local churches, has allocated a monthly shift to DC Homeschool which will allow our families to serve together. Parents and students will work together to pack and distribute bags of groceries to the visitors of Helping Hands. Beginning the fourth Wednesday in January, DC Homeschool will provide up to 10 volunteers for a monthly afternoon shift at Helping Hands. Parents are expected to stay with their children unless other arrangements are made. To best serve this organization, volunteers should be ages 8 and up. DC Homeschool will serve the fourth Wednesday of each month from 1:30-4:30. We will be posting a sign up on the blog in the next few weeks.
