Volunteer on Thanksgiving

by Christina Malliet

This Thursday, November 25, is Thanksgiving Day in the United States. Many people will go without turkey and stuffing this year, and there are many ways you can get involved to help. To give thanks and lend a hand this year, check out the following resources for Thanksgiving volunteer opportunities near you:
  • offers advice for finding kid-friendly volunteer opportunities that you can do as a family.
  • provides links to organization-posted opportunities, which are found by searching a location.
  • has volunteer opportunities organized by locations. The site features a unique program in which volunteers can have new listings texted to their cell phones.
  • facilitates the exchange of resources and ideas between individuals and organizations. This site also has a section on kid-friendly opportunities.
  • features US government-supported volunteer positions, organized by location.
  • lists postings by location for both volunteers and non-profits. This site has a section on kid-friendly opportunities.

Consider taking advantage of the volunteer activities listed on these sites to help those in need. All of these organizations provide volunteer opportunities all year-round, so make sure to check them out at other times of the year too!

Happy Thanksgiving from ICP!
