9-21-21 — Family Day Becomes Family Week in Olathe

Sept. 21, 2021 ~ A great idea — Olathe Family Day — is seven times better this year because it’s now Olathe Family Week, Sept. 26-Oct. 2. This celebration of family is the perfect time to get closer to family members and have meaningful conversations and activities with children.

Olathe Family Week is hosted by Olathe Communities That Care, in partnership with the City of Olathe, Olathe Public Schools, HyVee on 119th Street and Mission Bowl Olathe. These partners encourage families to do something fun together, whether it’s sharing a meal or enjoying an outing.

Familial relationships help prevent underage substance abuse, according to Olathe Communities That Care and the Partnership to End Addiction website.

For more information on how to talk with children about substances or fun family outing ideas, visit the Olathe Communities That Care webpage.
