Be an “Incredible Family Volunteer”! 
Kitsap County Parks and Recreation Participates in Family Volunteer Day  

(Bremerton. WA) - Washington families, often known for their spirit of giving, will join hundreds of other families across America in a nationwide celebration of family volunteering. On Saturday, November 22, families are invited to participate in Family Volunteer Day with Kitsap County Parks and Recreation at Old Mill Park in Silverdale , Washington . We will be restoring an area along the Dyes Inlet shoreline. Participants will be removing non-native brush and spreading mulch along the trail. The project will begin at 10:00AM and end at 1:00PM with lunch, which will be provided by Famous Dave’s BBQ.  If you are interested in participating in this event, please contact Lori Raymaker, Kitsap County Park Stewardship Coordinator, at (360) 337-5372 or visit our website at www.kitsapgov.com/parks

Background - What is Family Volunteer Day?
“Hands on Network” and the Disney Company have joined forces to sponsor Family Volunteer Day. This is a day of service designed to demonstrate the power of families who choose to volunteer together to support the communities in which they live and serve. Volunteering as a family provides quality time for busy families, strengthens communication and bonds, and positively impacts local communities across the nation. The day was created to highlight the benefits of family volunteering and to provide an opportunity for America ’s families to help communities create supportive environments for their children and each other. The Day is strategically held on the Saturday before Thanksgiving each year as a means of “kicking-off” a Holiday season of giving and service. In addition, Family Volunteer Day kicks off National Family Week.
