Do you volunteer?
Do you give your time to help out in places like schools or other community institutions or organizations? What are the opportunities to help in your town or neighborhood?
I joined the medical reserve corps. This is an organizational that can be found at the county level at the health department. Both Katrina and 9/11, showed the nation that there needed to be a group of medical professionals and volunteers (not necessarily in the medical field) who could be called up in case of an emergency. I have found it to be very rewarding and helpful to the community.
No. I give clothes to goodwill, donate food, but never give my time to volunteer.
I do volunteer. My paid work is at a human service agency working with homeless and at risk families. My title is volunteer director. I volunteer doing fundraisers for people I love, online and just coordinated a fundraiser memorial for a friend. I was the volunteer that chaired the volunteer and auction committee. I brought all volunteers and auction items in. I pulled the whole thing off and it was a success.
I also volunteered at the mens homeless shelter this year at St. Stephens in MPLS. They are always looking for volunteers..
I volunteer at two organizations in Portland: Ride Connection and The Alzheimer's Assoc. of Oregon. Portland has many opportunities to give one's time, talent, and treasure.
I volunteer with my town's literacy tutoring program. We do both basic literacy and English as a Second Language.
I volunteer as an amateur radio operator, in my church, and as the leader of a non-profit group
As I am not independently wealthy volunteering is probably the only way I will ever be able to claim to be a philanthropist.
I'm hoping to post a hub about volunteering later this week (after taking care of other volunteer obligations.)
I'm glad to hear about people who are able to take the time to help out in various ways. I live in a small town. People volunteer at the library, the museum, the hospital, the sheriff's department and in many service organizations. Some people say that our community runs on volunteers-- and things would certainly be different, and more difficult if people didn't help.
I think it is true in much of the US-- and in other countries, as far as I know.
The benefits to a community are evident, but it is also a great way to bind the individuals together. You meet a lot of like-minded people when you are participating in volunteer activities.
I've done a lot of volunteering over the years - at church, on my condo board, on my son's hockey team. I'm retired now and think it's time for the younger generation to do some work. However, I was asked to volunteer again for my condo board, and I agreed.
HelloRochelle, yes. I volunteered to run a book club at my local library. I also work at the library part-time, but all of my book club activities are done in my own time and are unpaid. It is actually one of my favorite activities. I get to meet library patrons and we choose books of the month and chat over coffee, tea and cookies at our monthly meetings. I am also planning several other voluntary items for the Fall and Winter that will be on a voluntary basis.
I also volunteer as a tutor at my local community college in the disabled student facility. As a blind student they helped me cope with balancing work and studies so I feel it only fair that as a graduate I go back and help them a little. Plus I am friends with many of the students as well as a tutor.
Hi Rochelle, I have volunteered in many different ways, but the largest was for a day care that my son was attending in a very small town in South Africa. We had no working toilets and the floors of the classrooms were just cement. We arranged a village fair and raised enough to install 4 child sized toilets with basins and to put flooring in each of the four little classrooms. It was a ton of work but I feel like I left a piece of myself in that village when we left. It feels great to volunteer!!
