)-- Project Giving Kids (PGK), a nonprofit organization that cultivates empathy in youth by connecting them to meaningful service opportunities, is hosting its first virtual Create the Change ® Week from November 7 through 15. Project Giving Kids 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 weeklong event includes three virtual sessions daily from nonprofit partners serving diverse causes, from helping the environment to supporting veterans to bringing cheer to isolated seniors. Participating nonprofit partners in Create the Change ® Week include St. Vincent Meals on Wheels, Pasadena Humane, and Ronald McDonald House Boston. 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
