      FamilyWorks December Holiday Party Needs Volunteers! FamilyWorks is having its annual holiday celebration for our participants! This is a really fun time with kids and families celebrating the holidays together. This year we plan to hand out Wonder Bags with small gifts for the kids. We would love volunteers to help out with set up, clean up, and other activities between 2:00 pm and 5:30 on December 16th and 18th.

      Green Lake Pathway of Lights on Saturday December 13 needs Volunteers! A huge holiday food drive will be underway and FamilyWorks will be on hand to collect food at three stations around the lake: Community Center, Aquatic Center/Amphitheater, and Bathhouse Theater. We need 2-3 volunteers for each two hour shift between 4-8 pm to help with collecting, marketing, and loading food into the van at these three collection points around the lake.
