VOLUNTEER – SOMEONE NEEDS YOU!
Linda M. Penn
As you and/or your kids get out of school for the summer, what are you going to do? Relax? Yes! Read? Yes! Sleep more? Yes! Volunteer? What?
YES - SOMEONE NEEDS YOU!
Volunteering by you, your kids, or as a family brings enjoyment in working on something worthwhile together, increases self-esteem, and makes us aware of our importance to the world.
Okay, so what are we going to do?
Search about the places to volunteer that sound interesting to you. A search for me was: “volunteer opportunities Louisville, KY” and this produced numerous websites.
I found there are areas of volunteerism in: Children and Youth, Community, Education and Literacy, Health and Medicine, Seniors, Sports and Recreation plus more. Specifically, volunteers could work at the Louisville Zoo, Kentucky Science Center, Louisville Metro Parks, or Louisville Metro Animal Services just to name a few.
For those of you who live in other towns and cities, just search for volunteer opportunities in your area.
Still not sure what to do? Try talking to someone at your school, library, church, government center or just talk to a neighbor or friend. REMEMBER: SOMEONE NEEDS YOU!
COME BACK THE FIRST WEEK OF JULY – “IMAGINATION – BUBBLES AND TENTS!”
