Volunteering For The Holidays
Posted 01 November 2007 - 10:04 AM
As I was searching out things to volunteer for, I found another job that sounds right up my alley, and maybe yours. There is an organization in my area that sets up volunteers to go to elderly people's homes around the holidays to visit with them and drop off gift baskets, or items of need. The volunteers go to people's homes that would normally be alone for the holidays. I just wanted to tell people in case something like this is available in your area and you were interested. It would mean so much to someone for you to spend some time with them not to mention how rewarding it would be to one's self. I cannot stand the thought of lonely people.

What a great idea. I have been wanting to do something with my boys in the way of volunteering for a long time. The holidays are a perfect time to do that.
My family won't be here for Thanksgiving. I am inviting a sweet woman from my divorce support group to join us for dinner. Her daughters live far away and I don't think she has any other plans.
I still would like to do more and you have inspired me to look into my community for places to volunteer. Thank you!

I want to get a part time holiday job but I am not sure how that works when you are receiving disabilty, and from a private insurer. Anyone know?
