Looking For Ways To Volunteer?

Want to work with a volunteer group but don't know where to start?

Check the town library, where civic-groups often leave pamphlets describing their activities.

Ad


Scan the classified ads of the newspaper for small display ads placed by nonprofit organizations.

Call the mayor's office; the superintendent of schools; or a local hospital, church, or synagogue. Say you're interested in volunteer work and ask if they can give you a lead.

Also watch your Sunday paper. On Sundays here, they have a small section where they will list volunteer opportunities including what agencies need clerical help, receptionist, etc. ALso check with your pastor. He can probably use your help also

Many Cities now are using volunteers to help their police depts. Several years ago my husband started a volunteer patrol for our city. It took awhile to get it started but it has really been good for the dept. They have a car and are called on to help with traffic control, stranded motorists, search for lost children etc. They help with tickets,reports so the officers can get back in the field faster. Extra eyes out there help a lot.
