Over the past few days, I have been working on a list of different volunteering opportunities that I want to partake in over the next year. Since I am starting college on August 20th, I decided that it is time to start volunteering on a larger scale. For the end of 2018, I want to partake in a Suicide prevention walk, Strong Kids Safe Kids, creating Thanksgiving Baskets for needy families, Toys for Tots and adopting a family for Christmas. For the beginning of 2019, I want to focus my attention on a local nonprofit that deals with foster children by obtaining items on their wish list such as school supplies, overnight bags, art + craft supplies, etc. I also want to create Mother’s day gifts that involve makeup, pajamas and other items for women at a local women’s shelter and perhaps create a craft night for the children that currently reside there. New ideas are constantly popping in my head, but the main thing I need to focus my attention on right now is obtaining the funds to support my 2019 volunteering ventures.
