Why do I volunteer?
Volunteering is one of my PASSIONS. One can feel helpless in this world with so many needing assistance, so I find that by diving in and giving of my time and talents, I can try and make an impact on other’s lives and hope that it helps make things better for them. Below are listed a few charities and groups I have worked with and for, and the tasks I have done for them. If you have any volunteer needs, please reach out and see how I can help!
