I served two separate social service stints on the Navajo reservation in New Mexico, stretching into Arizona. The first involved preparing supplies and staples to many families that lived there. The second trip involved a summer school and teaching some of the children English. I have taught English and grammar classes at a 6th grade level, tutored literature students. I've prepared sandbags for flood operations, as well as helped with major flood clean ups, served at a thrift store, and helped to feed/shelter a group of "run for a cause" people. All many many years ago unfortunately.

i volunteered at aNursing Home for 6 years after my mother passed away, it was very rewarding, I used to do things to cheer the residents up and help to feed them at lunch time, I really did get to like a lot of those lovely old souls, maybe too much sometimes, then I would get so upset when I had to watch them get to the stage of passing on...

Yes, volunteering has always been my passion. As of the moment, I volunteer my time and skills to an anti-poverty program here in the Philippines called Gawad Kalinga. My job involves helping raise funds to support the organization. I also help build and paint houses for the beneficiaries and teach English to the kids. It is a very fulfilling experience to say the least. And by February next year, I will be in Ethiopia for my two-year volunteering stint. I've never been this excited!

Yes, I volunteered many times already and the feeling is just wonderful! We have this school program named Community Outreach Programs where we give out free grocery packs to parking attendants and street children in our place. we hanve been doing it for years already; once a month outreach program. On school year beginnings, we also give out free school supplies to remote barangays in the area.
