A dozen different shelters, food pantries and senior centers will benefit from the items made at this Family Volunteer Day event, which included fleece scarves, toiletry care kits, Thanksgiving centerpieces, holiday cards and much more. A face-painting booth, puppet show, live jazz band, raffle and gingerbread man added to the fun and festivity of the event. Kids of all ages, many who had never before volunteered, learned just how fun the joy of giving can be while helping New Yorkers in need.
