Volunteering is more important than ever. There are many local businesses that are in need of volunteers to help pass out food, collect items, feed and play with cats and dogs and so much more. I’ll continue to add to this list.

Volunteering is great for kids to learn empathy, civics, prepare for future job interviews and more. It can be an opportunity to hone skills, work with organizations, prepare for interviews and gain confidence and skills. And don’t forget to support local businesses this holiday season! I have a growing list of unique gifts at a discount from local artists and businesses. Seriously, there’s some cool stuff in the holiday gift guide!

Volunteer Tracker & Preparation Kit

Volunteering can help prepare kids and teens to work in a field they are considering. It can also help them realize their strengths and weaknesses.  When volunteering, be prepared to answer questions. Organizations want to know about why you want to volunteer with this particular organization and what you can offer. Get 50% off through Nov. 27 with coupon code BF50.

She is currently looking for volunteers to help with a large distribution of Christmas trees that have been donated by a national box retailer. They have four sites confirmed.
