We all do it. Tell ourselves things like “I hate yardwork so they won’t want me,” or “I’m not good with people. You have to be a people person to help.” It’s easy to find reasons not to take that first step into the unknown and volunteer. Want to know a secret? YOU, yes YOU, are exactly the person our community needs.
Maybe you love to cook? You pour your love into the meals you whip up for family and friends and wait in anticipation to see their faces when they take that first bite. Guess what? Circles of Grant County needs volunteers to provide meals for their Tuesday night meetings. Are you a natural leader? Put that strength to good use by helping out at Rock the Way in Gas City Park where you can direct people and answer questions. Find your peace under the sunshine in the garden? St. Martin Community Center needs groundskeepers to help with planting flowers, pulling weeds, and raking. You could enjoy the fresh air and make the world pretty. Not bad for a day’s work.
The truth is you have gifts and talents and there is an organization that is looking for exactly what you have to offer.
The population of Grant County is nearly 70,000 people. On our own, we can make small changes, but 70,000 people reaching out to help one another could change our community in ways we can’t even imagine yet.
So take a small step. Search around on the site and find the opportunity that connects with your passion. Then take the leap and find YOUR way to Serve Grant County.
