Thanksgiving Volunteer Opportunities

This month as we remind ourselves of our good fortune, what better way to spread the love than to volunteer and give back to the community? Volunteering at a local food pantry or clothing donation center is a great way to participate in our community and make a difference. Hospital volunteering is also a rewarding opportunity to help those in need.
