Pay It Forward Through Volunteering
I believe that most people are good and generous with a desire to help others in some way. I also believe that a lot of people just don’t know where to find opportunities to direct their energies.
Our local paper, the Sandusky Register, posts a section on ways to volunteer every Sunday's newspaper.
Some of the opportunities include:
*Drivers are needed to transport people to their medical appointments on an as needed basis
*Serve lunch and bus tables in a senior facility
*Help with an afterschool program for children doing homework, playing in the gym or participating in other supervised activities
*Working outside to help many of our non-profit agencies batten down the hatches by cleaning flower beds, raking leaves, winterizing.
* Helping at the local Humane Society
Most churches or museums or theaters also have longs list of things to do as well as your local hospital or nursing home.
The easiest way to get started is to lift your index finger and dial the phone. Come on, you can do it.
