Many of us have a lot of good intentions every year but somehow we just never get around to making a difference in ours or other lives. Well 2013 can be different. The United Way of South Mississippi has launched a program called "30 ways in 30 days." This program gives each one of us a chance to start the year by volunteering at one of our local agencies.
Not many have the time to volunteer each and every day. But most of us can find the time to volunteer at least an hour or two each week. Thus the program "30 ways in 30 days."
The director of the United Way Volunteer Center says, "Our hope is that the campaign will generate enthusiasm around the many great volunteer opportunities that exist in our community and that the enthusiasm will catch on through social media. He adds after all the only thing better than doing a good deed is doing a good deed that inspires others.
The volunteer opportunities are varied such as read to the elderly or deliver meals to home alone seniors. A local museum is looking for volunteers to help with activities and art projects. There are needs at several agencies for volunteers to be office assistants.
If you have some time and would like to start the year off on a good foot, then think about giving back to your community and volunteering a few hours a week. You can find more by going to the community site on this web site and clicking on the United Way of South Mississippi link.
Have a happy and prosperous 2013.
