Imagine Nation and ESPN will celebrate National Family Volunteer Day, Saturday, November 19, from 8:00am to 10:00am in downtown Bristol at One Pleasant Street in Bristol, Connecticut.

For the tenth year in a row Imagine Nation will be joined by Team ESPN employees and invites families from across Connecticut, committed to help make a difference in their communities to join-in and volunteer at Family Day at Imagine Nation Early Learning Center.

For over 25 years, Family Volunteer Day traditionally has been held on the Saturday before Thanksgiving to “kick-off” the holiday season with giving and service. On Family Volunteer Day, Imagine Nation is joining Disney Friends for Change to engage families in acts of service.

Imagine Nation has helped to promote programming for this national effort to bring families together to help those in need throughout the community of Bristol and Connecticut.

Coral Richardson, Imagine Nation Early Learning Center Director said “We look forward to Family Volunteer Day, a wonderful collaborative community project each year”.

“We are joining in the celebration of family volunteerism and making a difference by creating a Gobble Thanksgiving placemat for patients at Bristol Hospital, nursing homes, and shelters in the community to brighten their holiday.” said Richardson.

ESPN employee Sandy Maier said how fun it is to bring her family in joining their community, to help others.

“The great opportunity about the National Family Volunteer Day is that it helps set an example for our children that communities should work together to help others.  I have brought my family every year to give back to our local community.”

Families who volunteer are invited to join other families for a light complimentary breakfast and free entrance to Imagine Nation between 10:00am and 5pm.
