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.

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.

Many times if you volunteer at a church run thrift shop, you can get the items in the shop for 1/2 price. Plus you can get first pick of the incoming items before it gets put out for the customers to buy. You can get some very nice designer items at thrift shops.
