Holiday Volunteering?
    #3486660 - 12/12/04 04:46 PM (12 years, 2 months ago)

With such a loving and enlightened community I was wundering how many give their time away during the holidays? I don't do much but I spend some time serving food at the homeless shelter every year. It is better than getting presents to help a little.  :heart:

I don't do it at all.  The way I see it, we are here to do what we can to help others.  Some of us have time to take care of our children and make ends meet, some of us have time to do whatever possible to help the demise of the rain forest, and some of us have time to feed the homeless. 

We're all here to do different things that help our communities, from the smallest of communities to the largest. 

It's nice that you are able to take time to help the homeless part of our communities.  Go you!  :heart:

I help at an old-folks home, and not just during the holidays.

It's a good deal. They give me back a lot more than I give them... in wisdom. :mushroom2:

I'm thinking of helping out at the Salvation Army on Christmas.
