Hilltown Families is a online grassroots communication network who’s mission is to connect, collaborate and create community building events.

Today from 10am-1pm volunteers were on hand to help seven different organizations who each had a station at the event. Some of the hands on activities including building birdhouses, making catnip toys to be donated to Dakin Humane Society and making fleece dog toys. Volunteers also learned to grow extra food in your family garden to donate to local food pantries.

Dakin also had an adoption station at today’s event where families could learn more about their services as well as the adoption process.

The Hilltown Families’ Family Community Service Event was completely free but space was limited and families were asked to preregister.
