Volunteering, Where to Begin?

Do you want to volunteer and give back to the community, but you’re not sure where to start?  What are you passionate about, underserved youth, cancer research, mental health, animal rescues?  Whatever issues motivate you to make a difference, there is probably an organization out there focusing their efforts and they most likely need volunteers!

For example, as a recruiter, I am passionate about helping to connect people with the right career opportunities.  I also support Dress for Success,  so I’ve contacted the local affiliate about volunteering to assist in preparing the clients for job interviews with resume reviews and mock interviews.  Don’t take your skills for granted, just an hour of your time may change a life forever!

Take a look at the thank you letter our team received from Hope House.  We are so grateful to have been given an opportunity to assist and they were glad to have the help, it’s a win-win situation!
