My husband, our 1 year old and 3 year old, my dad and stepmom and I all volunteered together with THP last Christmas for our family service project. We caroled at a local nursing home. It was SO REWARDING!!! - totally recommend for groups or individuals of all ages. There are even some visits you can do with your pet. :-)
