           Where can I volunteer on Thanksgiving in Cumming? Thanksgiving is the best times of the year to be thankful for you have and give back to the people who are in need. Whether it is by donating money or your time, it all is very helpful. If you are looking to volunteer and help out around the city this year, then you should check out the great volunteer options.

There are several volunteer opportunities that you could do either before the holidays or on Thanksgiving day. The United Way of Forsyth County supports several food banks that you could either donate money, non perishable foods or your time.

 Another avenue that is often overlooked is the Atlanta Humane Society. Holidays are often hard on struggling families and there are more abandoned pets during this time. Volunteers are needed to foster, walk or of course donations are aways welcome.

Act Together Ministries are holding their 4th Annual Community Thanksgiving Dinner. Volunteers are needed to serve food, assist with crowd control, play with the kids, visit with guests and help as needed. Volunteers MUST be flexible and willing to serve where needed.

There is also Lift Up Atlanta that is collecting food baskets to give out to deserving families. Community partners are needed for their Thanksgiving Food Basket Giveaway They want to give around 100 PLUS Thanksgiving food baskets to Needy Families in the metro Atlanta area this holiday season. 

 The IRC's (Internationl Rescue Committee) annual First Thanksgiving Feast will be held on Saturday, November 19th, 2011 from 1 to 3pm at St. Timothy's United Methodist ChurchLooking for a special way to give thanks this year? Come and help introduce newly arrived refugees to the American traditions of Thanksgiving! This may be a day they remember the rest of their lives. Volunteer opportunities range from greeters, food servers, decorations, photographers and more.

Atlanta Half Marathon and Thanksgiving 5K: As one of the biggest half marathons in the country, the Atlanta 5k is the perfect place to help volunteer. Help make the run much smoother with your help on November 28th. Their charity partner this year is the Atlanta Mission.

On Saturday, November 30th, you can help out the Chili Outreach that will be put on by Safehouse Outreach. Food and hardwork will be accepted to help make this a wonderful event for everyone involved

 Volunteering is a great thing to do, especially during the holidays. So, if you can, try and volunteer this year at any of these wonderful  events!
