During this time when residents are practicing social distancing and looking for fun, safe activities to keep busy and engaged, members of Darien’s Human Services Planning Council (HSPC) and the Thriving Youth Task Force (TYTF) recently brainstormed the idea of creating a shared community resource to gather residents’ favorite ideas for fun, relaxation and family time.
Introducing “Mission: Positive!” -- a curated list of pandemic-safe and entertaining family activities, holiday celebration and craft inspiration, book and playlist recommendations and much more! The Community Fund of Darien, which convenes HSPC and TYTF, will host the resource on its website (www.communityfunddarien.org under the “Community” tab.) Residents are invited to submit via the website their ideas and recommendations, which will be reviewed by a panel of volunteers to ensure that they are COVID-19 safe, socially distant, appropriate for all ages and contribute to positive youth development.
Categories include: Activities, Adventures, Family Fun, Game Night, Good Reads, Holiday Traditions, Must-See TV, New to Town, Party Ideas, Playlists and Positive Vibes.
With the holidays around the corner and many plans being reimagined due to the pandemic, families have a unique opportunity to come together and make the best of an uncertain and ever-changing situation. Mission: Positive! hopes to help inspire our community to create new traditions and memories that will last a lifetime.
