Family Service Day is a unique way for business owners and employees to get involved in supporting their community. It’s an alternative to cash donations to various charities, and allows the business to develop direct relationships with those in need, rather than donating through a larger charitable organization.
Businesses select a day every one to two months and designate it as Family Service Day. On that day, single parent families can come to the business and receive free services, to help them offset the challenges of being a single-parent family. For example, an auto repair center provides free basic maintenance, oil changes, etc. A restaurant might provide a free meal, and a medical clinic could offer free well-child checkups or physicals.
There are really no limitations — if you have desire to make an impact in your community, Family Service Day is a great way to get involved.
