Interested in doing a good deed, but don’t know where to start?
Try Activate Good, a Triangle nonprofit that matches willing volunteers, whether individuals or groups, with charitable causes in need of services.
Some volunteer opportunities are one-day events. Others are ongoing, so you can keep on making a difference!
Sort clothes, drive someone to a doctor’s appointment, perform data entry, mentor youth … these are just a few of the opportunities to use your own skill sets to help others.
Others include family-friendly ways to help, or opportunities to use your professional skills, such as accounting, website development and grant writing.
Need more motivation?
Volunteering has benefits for you, too: Pride, satisfaction, accomplishment, problem solving, connection to others, stronger communities, and even better mental and physical health! (nationalservice.gov)
