With our busy lives, it can be hard to find time to volunteer. Lots of folks “talk the talk,” but very few actually make the time and effort to “walk the walk.” For me personally, I’ve been wanting to step-up my volunteering efforts. I’m always looking to specifically be of service where it’s most needed and meaningful.
Recently, I chose to volunteer at a soup kitchen, ran by Brother’s Keeper, in Ocala, Florida. Aid for the needy especially resonates with me because I have first-hand knowledge of a family member who was homeless. I also read that Florida ranks 5th with the most homeless in the United States. (worldpopulationreview.com).
Brother’s Keeper is a social service outreach ministry of Blessed Trinity Catholic Church. This organization is committed to helping the poor and needy. The ministry runs a soup kitchen, a thrift store and provides emergency services. For Thanksgiving they collect money to buy groceries for needy families. They also collect food and new toys to give to families and children at Christmas. These various efforts are made possible largely because of donations and volunteers.
ACCOLADE Celebrations, the organization I founded, understands the need to recognize and show appreciation for the good things people do, to include volunteers who donate their time and efforts to improve situations in their communities.
Walk the walk. Volunteer. There are lots of opportunities, whether at Brother’s Keeper or elsewhere. Contact me at ACCOLADE Celebrations for our own volunteer opportunities and details for how to apply for the President’s Volunteer Service Award. #presidentsvolunteerserviceaward #actsofkindnessawards #followus #stayuptodate #celebratingexcellence.
