Be A Volunteer?

a volunteer; the only requirement is a desire to help. Everyone has
something special to give**

with your family, volunteering can broaden
your world, develop your hidden talents, refresh your job skills and provide
an example to other family members.

to your life. There are many opportunities to volunteer in the evenings,
on weekends or during your lunch hour.
