Volunteer Work

27 October 2012

Today was my first official day volunteering at the Homeless Shelter. It's a small shelter, not to far from my house. I enjoy giving to those that are in need. This particular shelter is ran by nothing but volunteers. NO one gets paid. My first day went good. I was able to learn how things work around there. There's only women and kids there. It's more like a home then like a facility. Which is a good thing for the ladies that are in transition. Feeling as if you are in a facility will just make things even harder on the ladies that are trying to find way's to provide housing for themselves.

If you have free time and want to help others out, then you should find a place to volunteer at. I googled shelters and found a few in my area. You can pick other non profit organizations that are in need of some help also. It feels good to be able to help those in need!

  1. Dear Leisure,
    I am a big promoter of volunteering. I used to volunteer to relieve my stress. Last Saturday, I was helping set up/tear down/and run the race for the cure. It was freezing! I wrote about it today on my blog, the weekly post I like to call Make a Difference Monday. Esther Norine Designs
