DO GOOD Week: Hands-On Opportunities

April 15, 2018    in
If you love being outdoors, getting your hands dirty, or serving others, there are plenty of volunteer opportunities for you! Grab your tools and get out in your community, there is never a lack of need for hands-on people like you.

Volunteering looks different to everyone and every organization, but if you like to get physical with your volunteering efforts, bring your talents out to do GOOD for the nonprofits in your area that need a little muscle power. There are plenty of opportunities working in gardens, helping with repairs, serving meals and more.
