Finding Room to Volunteer

    I think these three tips are golden! Three different perspectives/avenues for carving space and place for volunteerism. I think of the adage that goes something like, “what gets written down gets done.” Even just penciling this time to volunteer on the monthly calendar will keep it in your front of you. As I’m typing an idea has come to me: what if while you are planning an outing to a public park you pack some inexpensive work gloves so that, together as a family, you can pick up any trash around the park to help clean it up while you’re there. This way play time gets combined with an opportunity to serve the community.

    Great article!

    Volunteering at a local food pantry is a great way to get the entire family involved. Our young children were able to work along side us as we packed boxes of food to be distributed to families in need. It was a long day and we were filthy by the end of it, but that didn’t stop any of us from smiling the entire time. The kids knew that they were doing something worthwhile by helping others and it made them feel good inside. They can’t wait to do it again!
