The George & Barbara Bush Foundation announces the third annual George and Barbara Bush Day of Service commemorating President and Mrs. Bush’s birthday month by celebrating their lifelong commitment to public service.
The six organizations charged with carrying on the legacies of President George H.W. Bush and former First Lady Barbara Bush will be volunteering in their local communities during the month of June. These six independent entities include the George & Barbara Bush Foundation, George H.W. Bush Presidential Library & Museum, The Bush School of Government & Public Service, Barbara Bush Foundation for Family Literacy, Points of Light, and Barbara Bush Houston Literacy Foundation. These organizations are committed to fostering the ideals and values that were driving forces in the lives of George & Barbara Bush. The Bushes left a blueprint on how to make a difference in the lives of all Americans through education, public service, literacy, volunteerism, and acts of character and inclusion.
The staff of the George & Barbara Bush Foundation, George H.W. Bush Presidential Library & Museum, and The Bush School of Government and Public Service, will participate in a day of service at the Brazos Valley Food Bank on Thursday, June 8.
We encourage organizations and individuals to find a way to volunteer in your community this month and honor the legacy that President and Mrs. Bush left behind.
