Host a DGT™ Family Service Fair in Your School
Hosting a fun, meaningful service fair in your school is easy. Doing Good Together can help in two ways:
1. Purchase our DIY PDF Manual with Online Toolkit, so that you may coordinate and host your own Doing Good Together™ Service Fair.
2. Consider hiring Doing Good Together, for a fee plus the cost of supplies, to coordinate a Family Service Fair for your school’s families.
In either case, your Doing Good Together Family Service Fair will be an event to remember. Families move among the activity stations and can work on every project or just a few, all while educating themselves and their children about critical social issues and the value of serving others. The fair has proved to be an ideal way for families to have fun together while making a real difference in the community.
To learn more about how you can host your own Family Service Fair, contact our Doing Good Together™ Family Service Fair Director, Nassim Rossi.

We’ll be working with DGT again!" -- Peg Bailey, Director, Breck Lower School, Minneapolis
