Celebrate what you’re thankful for this November by giving back to your community!
We’re back with our monthly “What’s GOOD?” series, giving you a rundown of other volunteer opportunities besides our regularly scheduled events. If you’re missing a Community Bucket event this November, or if you just need more volunteering in your life, we’ve got you covered. All you need to do is contact the organization or show up (details for each are included below). You can even invite other CB-ers to go with you, but you don’t need to register through us to attend.
Have an event you’d like to feature next month? Attend an event and want to share feedback or pictures? Send an email to Emily@CommunityBucket.com!
