Music can make any task into a party. This year, as we celebrate the 30th anniversary of Family Volunteer Day, we thought while we can’t be together, we can share the joy in giving back by sharing some great music! In honor of this major milestone, we asked the Points of Light Youth Council to handpick their favorite songs to listen to with their families while doing their service projects.
Here are some of the songs they’ll be listening to on Family Volunteer Day. What else would you add?
- Be A Light -Thomas Rhett

- HandClap – Fitz and the Tantrums
- Happy – Pharrell Williams
- Can’t Stop the Feeling! – Justin Timberlake
