"Volunteering" looks a bit more like reading and eating.  The folks at the Literacy Council are good to us. :D

Doing Good in the Community

Standard

Grace and I have decided to start doing our best to do some good in our community.  This year we will be focusing on using our time, skills, and (a little) money to give back to the community.  (We won’t be spending a lot of money because, well, we don’t have a lot of money. 😉 )Our first project was donating supplies to a local women’s shelter.  Our next one will be picking up trash in a local park that we go to frequently.  You can keep up with our community projects on this part of the blog: Community Good.

If you have any suggestions for our projects, please drop us a comment.  Looking for community projects to take on yourself?  Feel free to check our list frequently to see if any of our projects are a good fit for you and your family. 😀
