It's never to early to teach a child the value of giving back. At least that's the philosophy behind Wee Volunteer, an organization that pairs parents and children ages 3 and older with non-profits to tackle projects big and small.
Wee Volunteer and their gaggle of good Samaritans have made some significant headway with several well-known Dallas non-profits including Community Partners of Dallas, where kids and parents collected and organized school supplies for a recent drive.
Want to help your child learn more about what charity is? Wee Volunteer has several upcoming events that are open to new volunteers big and small:
