What Volunteering Means

Volunteering means spending some of your free time helping others. You may volunteer to help other people, protect animals, the environment, or any other cause that you care about. Talk to your parents and other family members to find ways you can help those who may be in need of your time.

Here are a few ways you and your family and friends can help those in need this Summer:

  1. Walk around the neighborhood, local park or beach with a garbage bag and pick up trash.
  2. Offer to plant flowers, rake leaves or pick up sticks of a neighbor.
  3. Collect and deliver supplies to neighbors who have just had a baby, undergone surgery, or experienced a house fire.
  4. Draw pictures, write notes or color rocks and deliver to your neighbors. Volunteering can be as simple as making people smile!
  5. Organize a used book collection and donate them to a local charity or local library.
  6. Coordinate a neighborhood garage sale and donate the money to a family in need.
  7. Collect blankets, toys and food and donate to a local animal shelter.
