RSVP and sign up to volunteer at this event http://eepurl.com/v64P

4GOOD was created in the summer of 2009 when two San Fernando Valley families (with four children under 10 among them) were looking for a meaningful way to show their kids how important it is to give back. After much searching, they realized it was not easy to find volunteer activities that would be appropriate and interesting for their young kids. Plus, they discovered that most organizations don’t accommodate kids joining along in the volunteer process. It was then that Erika and  Peter Athanas and Katie and Jeff Goldman decided to start their own organization with the mission to “help families actively participate in volunteer activities to foster the values of kindness, compassion, tolerance, community responsibility and good citizenship.”    For more info about how to get involved: www.4goodcommunity.org Sweet Harts 13704 Ventura Blvd. Sherman Oaks, CA (South/West corner of Woodman & Ventura-if parking lot is full please use neighborhood side streets).
