"Doing Good Together" shows that family volunteerism is a great way to serve others: it makes people feel good, it strengthens your community and it can strengthen families. The projects in this book are organized into chapters based on theme and are designed to be used with families with preschool to 12th-grade children. Throughout the book you'll find ready to use handouts to photocopy and distribute. A great resource for schools, workplaces, community organizations, faith-based organizations and youth groups.
If you want to get families involved in community service, then this book is a must read!

I purchased this book for use with my Girl Scout troop and for my own family and it's amazing! I've shown this book to several other teachers and parents and they immediately ordered one. I love that the ideas are well presented, easy enough to do, do not require huge time commitments, encourages reflection and gives tons of additional ideas. It has also sparked more of an interest with my children. Everyone should buy this book!
