KSU, families will unite for a day of service

FRANKFORT — Kentucky State University (KSU) will celebrate Family Volunteer Day on Saturday, December 3.* (*The original time — November 19 — has been postponed due to weather.) Several volunteers will roll up their sleeves and help to clean Green Hill Cemetery at 9 a.m. for a day of service.

Family Volunteer Day celebrates the power of families who work together to support their communities and neighborhoods. This will be a great way for kids and adults to make new friends, develop compassion for their neighbors, and even pick up a skill or two.

On Family Volunteer Day, KSU is joining The Walt Disney Company and generationOn, to engage families in acts of service. For more than 25 years, Family Volunteer Day has been held on the Saturday before Thanksgiving to kick off the holiday season by giving and service.

Participants, who use social media, are being asked to tweet and photograph their progress at Green Hill Cemetery using the hashtag: #FamilyVolunteerDay and direct tweets to @generationOn and @CitizenDisney
