Doing Good Together™ Family Service Fairs
A Fun Occasion with Lessons that Last
In an approximately two-hour open house style event, a Doing Good Together™ Family Service Fair features a variety of opportunities for families and other interested participants to do simple and fun hands-on projects that benefit non-profit organizations meeting needs in the community.
- Educational toys for children in crisis
- Dinner kits for low-income families
- Toys for orphaned animals
- “Happy mail” for children struggling with serious illnesses
- Hygiene kits for homeless families
Those who participate in a DGT™ Family Service Fair receive take-home project ideas and tools to reflect on their experience, so they can continue their involvement in community service on their own. Past participants consistently rate the fairs as positive experiences, with 94% saying the event was "great."
Research shows family volunteering teaches empathy, community responsibility and good citizenship to young people; strengthens families through improved communication and time together; and meets critical community needs by encouraging philanthropy.
