Learn about local volunteering opportunities.

How to do it
Want to lend a hand? Do a search using the name of your city/town and state or province, along with the words "volunteer opportunities." Choose a link and read about how you can help! (If you live in the US., you can also visit www.volunteermatch.org to find out about volunteering opportunities in your immediate area, ranging from one-day stints to weekly ones or longer.)

Why it matters
Volunteering can bring great benefits to your community, by providing help and services to those who can use it. But it can be a big help for you, too! Volunteering brings a sense of satisfaction, bolsters self-esteem, and can help you feel needed and valued. It also communicates to those around you that you care about the community in which you live. Finally, it allows you to learn new skills (or develop ones you already have) and meet new people.

Fun Fact
One of the items most commonly recommended for food donation is beans. They keep for a long time, are inexpensive, and are high in protein and fiber.
