Here is a list of kind civic-minded things IV students to do with their family's on this Civic Holiday Monday, or any day IV that matter.
I. Visit senior citizens in lodges/extended care facility's. Seniors, especially those whose spouse has died are quite lonely due to their lack of mobility. Having people visit them will cheer them up so they can chat & also make the visitor happy with their fascinating senior insights.
II. Serve as a candy striper or volunteer in say a hospital emergency ward. Hospital volunteer experience is good not just IV students & sick patients, its good IV a resume as a volunteer experience reference IV those students who take part.
III. Volunteer to serve a meal at a homeless shelter/soup kitchen.
IV. Clean up garbage & other refuse in say a park area or around your neighborhood to make it feel & look better. Great exercise plus you can bring along any family pets for a healthy & fun time of running around with the family.
V. Help a neighbor with a small household duty such as painting their garage door. Students gain valuable painting/construction experience time here & a healthy bonding period with their neighbors.
VI. Have a neighborhood potluck so that you & your neighbors really get to know one another./
