Caring Cubs’ monthly service projects focus on a wide-range of topics geared toward very young children — from helping the elderly and the hungry to caring for the environmentand animals. Our projects always focus on how good it feels to be helpful and kind, that volunteering together is meaningful and fun.
Hosted by our board members, service projects typically last 90 minutes to 2 hours. We ask families to arrive on time so they get the full experience — receive instructions, hear speakers, and participate in the hands-on projects. That said, we know that families with young children need flexibility. It is fine for little ones to be “off-task;” it is fine to step in and out; it is fine to leave early. The projects are designed to be fun for the whole family while highlighting meaningful community organizations. While projects are geared toward little ones, older kids are always welcome.
Regardless of the seriousness of some recipient organizations, our message is always age-appropriate. With themes of kindness, generosity, and care, we talk about bringing smiles to people who are having a tough day or the importance of taking care of the world around us. Specific information about the bigger picture is always available to parents who desire more, but is not part of our presentations.
