Bluegrass Greensource is proud to announce our participation in a global day of service for families.  Family Volunteer Day is a day of service that celebrates the power of families who work together to support their communities and neighborhoods.  Why do family volunteerism?  Volunteering instills in kids, teens, and parents a sense of community and togetherness.  It’s so important to give back to the community.  Volunteering is a great way for kids and adults to make new friends, develop compassion for their neighbors, and even pick up a new skill or two!

Bluegrass Greensource is hoping to recruit 75 volunteers to work together to improve an empty water quality lot at 862 Furlong Drive.  Projects for this event include planting 20 trees and shrubs, painting two storm drain murals, and conducting a neighborhood wide litter clean-up.  Family Volunteer Day will be held on Saturday, November 18th, from 1-3pm.   So, kick off the holiday season the weekend before Thanksgiving, with loved ones and an act of volunteerism with Bluegrass Greensource.

Family Volunteer Day is brought to you by generationOn and Disney. As part of this event, Bluegrass Greensource will be giving away two Disney World Park Hopper tickets – one entry per volunteer. To enter, pre-register for the volunteer event by clicking here, and then show up on November 18th to volunteer.

Don’t forget to bring your family!
