Today I volunteered at the community hospital, it's been a year since they moved into their new digs. I had a BALL! Yes, it was fast-paced, and yes I am so tired that it hurts to think, but it was a very rewarding day.
Next week I start volunteering at a county health office. It is free to people of that community that lack insurance. The patients can receive their medications and office visits totally free. They also have a dentist that comes in for cleanings and extractions. Considering the financial status many people are in today, this is a great service for the community.
The last few years I have wanted to find places to volunteer my services, and I think the good feeling I get from assisting others is just what I need at this time in my life. If you have volunteered please share your experiences I would love to hear your opinions.
