Not in ER yet but DW and I have a list of volunteer work we want to do. In the meantime we are give cold hard cash when we can and DW does a LOT of volunteer time for several agencies as the sponser at her workplace.
Agencies we help so far:
United Way -time and $ (every $ does to the agency for real work since the promotional
aspects are covered by the various industries here)
Disabled Vets. $
Food Bank-goods, $ and time
Meals on Wheels-$ and Time
Homeless Shelter-$ and time serving meals
ARC- household goods donated for them to sell
Big Brothers/Big Sisters-donation household goods and $
American Cancer Society-$
American Heart Association-$
Jr. Diabetes- time and $
Boy Scouts, Shriners, Fire Dept., Police Funds etc. $
We have cut back on the number and are concentrating on giving more to those we support....it is a work in process.
