Some Family Volunteering - The Fall Fix-Up

Today the family gathered with many other volunteer families for the Jewish Family Services Fall Fix Up.

Groups of families go out into the community in teams and help the elderly and other shut-ins who are living alone by raking their leaves, washing their exterior windows and helping tidy up their yards.

So we went with two other families we knew to Oak Park and spent quite a few hours helping out.

We raked up many, many, bags worth of leaves and cleaned windows until they shined.

It was a good time and the kids worked hard and did some good work, and they were highly appreciated by those we helped.

Not a bad way to spend some time as a family on a pleasant Sunday.
