Why do you ask? [/quote]
Fair question, I serve on a few boards (hosp, redcross. sal army) and also do some pure volunteer work on weekends. Anyway some of the organizations that I donate my time to are having a very difficult time trying to find other volunteers. That usually means that those already involved have to pick up the slack.
I was wondering if this was something that was happening just in my area, or is prevalent across the board.
Do you volunteer?
Are you married? Do you have kids? If no to both then I applaud you sir and keep up the good work. If you do…then what is going on at home that you dont want to be there?[/quote]
Married, but no kids yet. My wife also works with one of the same volunteer groups so we’re able to spend time together, while doing some work in the community so it’s a good deal. Once the kids come the amount of time I have to volunteer will definitely change, so I’m doing what I can now.[/quote]
Take my word for it, KIDS will be your life. Our youngest is a fresman in HS, when she gets done I see my wife and I doing some volunteer work. Not money but our actual time. I think its good for people to give back to there community, but raising your kids right and being involved in there life is the best thing you can do for your community.
