With your kids – aka deputy do-gooders – by your side, you can pick up and deliver donations for many types of organizations. Simple tasks like loading the car and driving to and fro can give an opportunity to discuss what you’re doing and why with your kids. As one mom interviewed for our family volunteering story put it: “It’s amazing what just driving around can do.”
Minimum age range: Since adult is primary volunteer, none.
Perks: Low bar for involvement, good entry point into volunteering.
