My parents volunteered with us a lot as kids ( we were homeschooled), and I would like to start doing some sort of volunteer project. My daughter is 20 months, so she may not be able to join me yet, but I would like to start now, and hopefully she could tag along in a few years. How do you guys volunteer?

 More parents should be like you and you learned from YOUR parents.  That's the way kids learn by example.

 Unfortunately I have an acquaintence with a 5 yr old and i have tried everything I can to not throw good clothes that have been outgrown in the garbage so nobody can use them.  I've told her to just make 2 piles of stuff to go and then use two big garbage bags.  Most charities pick up.  I'm the exact opposite and try to pass on anything I dont need to somebody who can use it.  Why would anyone be like this?

Our local food bank has a garden and orchards. my DD (4) actually painted a few of the trash cans in the garden. We were there to help with the gardening project there was few other small kids and the organizers asked them if they wanted to paint the trash bins and they did. Lol

I volunteer for the USO, PTO, PTA, Awana, Sunday school, girl scouts, FRG leader, and my 5 & 6 year olds also volunteer for the USO. My 20 month old comes along with me to everything I do. I love volunteering.
