Are you thinking about doing some sort of hands-on volunteer work butÂ are lost when it comes to what will fit in yourÂ lifestyle and capabilities?Â
Perhaps you don’t think you have anything to offerÂ or that being a volunteer for the high-profile organizations like the American Red Cross or the Salvation ArmyÂ won’t work within your work schedule?Â
YOU CAN help others. It’s just a matter of finding a way that is meaningful to you. But, how do you find a way to get involved that will speakÂ to your own heart and use your own unique talents?Â The answers are probably all around you, all you need to do is slow down and take a look.
