  • Do you only have an hour here or there to spare and would really like to give back. Come and help us in our computer lab. Our participants are learning how to create a resume and cover letter and/or are job hunting and may need some extra assistance.
  • Are you a good cook or are you involved with a group that wants to do something that would help others. During our monthly meetings with our participants it is important that we offer a meal for them. Unfortunately, this is also the most costly for us to do. We always welcome outside groups to make a meal and bring it in or donate money for us to purchase a meal for about 30 people who attend our meeting.
  • Do you have a specialty that you could come and share with our participants? Maybe your good at budgeting and would like to come and teach our class the best practices of budgeting on a limited income. What about how to reduce stress, or coupon shopping? The list is endless.
  • Are you interested in giving back but just don’t feel like you have the extra time to spare.
