It's the last day of school for many students in our region and summer break is about to start. So that's got me thinking about summer plans. I have often used the summer break to help out with a new organization as the need sometimes goes up with many volunteers taking a much needed break at times over the summer. It also allows me to become more familiar with the work of some local organizations. Last year I volunteered at Habitat for Humanity and really enjoyed that. I wasn't building houses but did feed those who were doing the building! Every summer, I also get to volunteer with Send'em Off Smiling which I will be posting about soon. Also, food supplies at the Food Bank are usually at their lowest over the summer, so that's always a great time to host a food drive or drop off items at a local food drive bin (found in many grocery stores).
Do you have any plans to give volunteering a try over the summer? Is there an organization you would like to learn more about? Comment below!
