You know when you come across a blog post that makes you want to do more? A post that convicts you, and makes you feel like getting up and being active?
When my husband and I moved to Northern California, back in the day, I could not find a job. We were renting a house, it was summer time, it was hot, I didn’t know anyone, and I was miserable.
Finally, I decided if I couldn’t find a job, I would volunteer. I called the local food bank, asked if they needed help, and sure enough they did. I worked on logging in the customers who came for food each day. It was a wonderful experience and to this day I still want to run a food bank. I really loved it.
Fast forward to now, we travel 8 months out of the year, we live a busy life with a preschooler and a baby on the way, and I still get that gnawing feeling that I need to do more for my community. So after traveling ends in May for us, I want to find volunteer opportunities in my community or county.
Here are some great websites to find volunteering opportunities:
