HuffPost Table Talk: National Family Volunteer Day

r-VOLUNTEER-large570

Every Friday, The Huffington Post presents a compelling topic to spark discussion at your dinner table.

As we head into the giving season, we’ll be doling out all kinds of reminders to think about giving back. It can be hard to remember when there is so much going on. But, if you’re feeling overwhelmed at school, work, or home, the best way to get out of your own head is to focus on the here and now and think about other people. To that end, we were excited to discover that tomorrow is National Family Volunteer Day. A day started by the Points of Light Institute, whose mission is to get more people thinking about — and fighting against — social problems.

Visit The Huffington Post for more information on National Family Volunteer Day, as well as suggestions on how your family can get started with volunteering, and questions to share at the dinner table about the importance of giving back.
