GREENWICH, Conn. -- Families looking for volunteer opportunities can find plenty of options in the Fairfield and Westchester areas at the free Community Activation Family Day on Sept. 11 at Bruce Museum in Greenwich.

As part of the national day of service and remembrance, about a dozen local community organizations looking for volunteers will be represented to offer families a chance to learn more about what they do. From 1-4 p.m., participants can bring in food and/or school supplies to donate while learning more about volunteer opportunities, organizers said.

There will also be information about an upcoming community art project at the event, organizers say. It all takes place at the museum, 1 Museum Drive, Greenwich.

Organizations participating are: Abilis, Audubon Greenwich, Connecticut Greyhound Adoption, Connecticut Humane Society, Greenwich Fire Department, Greenwich Green and Clean, Meals on Wheels Greenwich, Neighbor to Neighbor, The Open Door Shelter, The Sharing Shelf, Seaside Center and YWCA Greenwich.

Admission is free but donations are encouraged. In addition to collecting non-perishable food and school supplies, organizers will host a backpack drive. For more details, contact Corinne Flax at the Bruce Museum at (203) 413-6742 or cflax@brucemuseum.org .
