get more people involved in volunteering in local community
I would help the local neighborhood commission create sidewalks along one of the busiest (but most walkable) stretches of road in our township.
I would love to help cleanup the beaches and oceans as well as spread the word about wildlife and conservation.
We help out at our local Woman's Safe Home by "couponing for good". The kids and I clip coupons and purchase items for the shelter and help the woman and children who need a safe new start. #OneWaytoHelp #entry #MI #ad
I would help to supply our local food pantry with toiletries: shampoo, deodorant, body wash, stuff like that - so that the families (especially the ladies!) can feel better emotionally, too.
Recycle and not purchase plastic water bottles.
Our town needs a new library. They are out of room, have facility issues and have very little parking.
I buy local and always recycle and try to find ways to feed the poor
I would help to rehabilitate injured wildlife - help to protect nature.
I would donate my time to clean up the cities in Michigan.
I would offer help for needy families on weekends. I noticed that the churches that provide help during the week operate 1 or 2 days out of the week and a couple of bigger churches may have Mon to Fri until 3 or 4 in the afternoon. I would like to provide help for needy families on weekends both Saturday and Sunday. We currently have enough volunteers during the week and i feel they would be willing to come in on weekends to help give out canned foods, cereals, juices, etc to the needy families in our area. #OneWaytoHelp #entry #FL #ad
I would start a program that offers high quality childcare for lower income families and the families would pay what they could afford.
I would make sure every child had a backpack and shoes to start the new school year.
I would start more TNR programs in my area (trap, neuter and release stray cats). I would also rescue as many as I could.
I pick up random bits of trash on the street. Every little bit helps.
