Accentuate the positive

I haven’t been feeling very virtuous for the past couple of days so I’m going to try to make up for it…
I’m coming from a ‘thank you’ dinner held for volunteers at a soup kitchen I ‘occasionally’ help at and I’m going to try not to toot their/my horn but just let people know there are volunteer opportunities out there that do not require a huge commitment and do some good. The commitment for the soup kitchen is usually 1 hour or 2, time goes fast, so let’s say 2 hours max if you are putting together sandwiches, on a Sunday or Monday evening. It maybe a little longer if you are assigned to go out on the Salvation Army van, where you quickly serve the sandwiches and soup/salad to people at various sites downtown. And once you are done, you’re done. Show up next week, next month, next year, or whatever, as I said no long term commitment.
My church that sponsors Sunday and Monday night, finally has a decent electronic sign up system, so email me (mari at inshaw dot com) with “soup kitchen” in the subject line and I’ll point you to where you need to go. Also if any of you non-profit people have other low-commitment programs that people can pop in and out of, especially those in Shaw and the surrounding area please mention them in the comments.
