Join a weekly virtual service opportunities for children and teens during these trying times
BOSTON, MA, USA, July 12, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Project Giving Kids (PGK), a nonprofit organization that connects youth to meaningful and age-appropriate service opportunities, is hosting its second annual virtual Summer Service Series from July 14 through August 4. PGK invites children, teens, and families to join in helping the lives of others from the comfort and safety of their own home at a time when many in our communities need significant support.
The month-long event includes four unique virtual volunteering sessions, one each week. Participating nonprofit partners include Social Justice Sewing Academy, Bay Area There With Care, Arts Resources Collaborative for Kids and Sportsmen’s Tennis and Enrichment Center. All sessions are free and are open to children and teenagers across the United States, with opportunities to tailor projects to their local community.

“I feel so lucky to have found Project Giving Kids. I am so impressed with the number and variety of organizations that they partner with…I especially feel great to be doing this during COVID since we can’t actually go places to volunteer. It feels good to be making a difference from home. Thank you for giving us the opportunity!” – Meg K., PGK Parent
While the pandemic has changed a lot of things in 2020, it has not changed PGK’s commitment to providing youth with opportunities to make a difference when communities are struggling more than ever.
