Volunteering This Evening

I've had to remind myself about a dozen times that I am going to a womens and kids shelter this evening to help the moms wrap their children gifts. I enjoy giving back as I have very caring and helpful people in my life that when times get rough are there to lend a hand. It will be a pleasure to assist them this evening and I count it all joy and blessings because it could easily be in that facility.
Do you ladies have any volunteering you do at certain times of the year? I don't have much time to volunteer but sometimes place of employment (Children's Hosp of Phila) have a listing of opportunities and I'll pick from that.

    Kim I understand about time. As mentioned, my job has a list so when I find a small window of time I try.

      At this time, no I don't. I have always wanted to give back in some way, shape, form, or fashion. I wanted to go to a homeless shelter and help them out, but with being a single mom it's a little difficult(not trying to make excuses). I wished we had resources to let us know where the help is truly needed it would be awesome. At this point, all I try to do is be a blessing to the people that may cross my path. Kuddos to all of you who gives back!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

        Hi Sheila, Thank you. The volunteering went pretty good. However, I did get a little depressed after awhile.
