by Charlie 27th May 2013

 

On Saturday, June 1st, 2013 from 9am until 1pm The Centre on Philanthropy is hosting their 2nd Annual Family Community Day at the Botanical Gardens.

 

This event is a great opportunity for families to spend quality time together while making a difference in our community. Children learn compassion and community awareness, together; you're building the foundation for volunteerism in the next generation.

 

Local charities bring projects that they need help with to the event and families work together to complete them during a morning of activities for everyone to enjoy.
