I volunteer at my local library when they have book sales, count week, craft classes , bake sales, ect…. I love to read and rent movies there also. I donate my craft supplies that I don’t use any longer and donate holiday decorations I no longer want so they can decorate the library. I also share my extra samples and coupons I get in my kits with the librarians.
I volunteered at Feed My Starving Children. It was such a rewarding experience and I left with my heart full of hope seeing so many people of every race, gender, income level work together for one purpose. I wish we could make the rest of the world work this way.
Hospitals need volunteer workers to. My niece started volunteering in baby ward and now she works there several days a week. Nursing homes have a lot of people who have no family so a friend of mine makes stops to a couple weekly visiting those people so they feel like they have someone who cares and she brings little goodies for them.
Involve your children with your volunteer work (helping to serve at a community supper, for example). Opens their eyes to the world and their place in it…and bonds you as a family that cares.
I would love to volunteer more in my area, but I don’t know where to find volunteer services.
Keep up the great work.
It is awesome.
I have wanted to volunteer at a soup kitchen with my 3rd grader, to keep her in check and reminded not everyone has it as good as you do. Keep her humble ya know? Well, I work 7-5 everyday, and it seems there are no kitchens in need of help when I am not at work. Any ideas on other ways too keep her humble?
