Good afternoon!

Hope you've all enjoyed the summer. Anyone have any information on volunteer opportunities that would be good for families with young children to do together?

We already know the big names like the Animal Shelter, Women's Coalition, CleanUpSTX, Boys & Girls Club, Lighthouse Mission, My Brother's Table, and the new Project Promise VI. We're going to check out many of these this year, but also wanted to check out and help spread the word on other good organizations that could use an occasional hand or donations.

Thank you!

Julie

There are so many.
Grab a phone book and look in the beginning pages for the Community Organization Services pages.
Take your pick.

Thank you --

I was hoping for some personal references if anyone has experience with activities that might be particularly good for families!

How about Cruzan Cowgirls and Jamison's rescue organizations, both on STX?

Both STT and STJ have human rescue organizations that always need funding. They're there day or night as first responders, land and sea.

I'd imagine STX must have one, too.

There is the Christiansted Community Alliance and the Friends of the National Parks on St. Croix, both of which often have volunteer opportunities varying from clean-ups to archaeology, and natural resource projects as well as monthly lectures on a variety of topics.
