Thinking about Becoming a Volunteer?

While volunteering is fun and rewarding, it also clearly benefits our local community and enables volunteers to learn new skills, stay active and make friends. Whether you are an individual (teen to retirees included), a business or a group you have talents and skills that others need.

Opportunities Range from Volunteering in a Hospital to Animal Care, Mentoring Children & Adults & Even Helping with the Environment. Volunteering can be a group effort or a personal gesture in any community. It can include going around door to door collecting donations for a good cause, planting trees, caring for an elderly neighbor, or stocking up on supplies in case a disaster comes to your town.

If You are not sure where to start, checking with local hospitals, churches, schools, animal shelters can be a good place to start. They can give ideas about something you can do or offer suggestions about who else to ask. Look for opportunities that include something you are already good at & consider other ideas for something that you would like to try a new skill too.

  1. good evening my name is Brandi Bryant and I was just wanting to know if you do community hours that are court mandated? I am ordered to do 25 hours in a month. I will tell you about myself. I pawned some items so I could put food on the table for my kids, and I was not able to get the items back, so I went to jail and got put on probation. I am not proud on what I did but I have learned from my past mistakes. so yes I am a felon for theft, but I don’t do that anymore. if you are able to help me out, I would really appreciate it. I can start as soon as possible.

  2. I do like that you said by becoming a volunteer, you can learn new skills, make new friends, and share your talents with other people. My sister and I are very passionate about making friends from all walks of life. Since we do have the intention to help other people, we’ll make sure to consider volunteering in child public affair charities. Thanks!
