What do you do to give back?

I know as moms, it's hard to find additional time to volunteer. I'm wondering what other moms are doing to give back to their community. This morning, I'm helping a local church with a consignment sale.

  • I used to foster cats and kittens for our local SPCA.  I am unable to foster at the present time due to my schedule but when my circumstances change, I plan to resume.

  • I am a college student and work part time I donate my books to the lending library or give them to people who cannot afford them. I also work in the parking on campus and when people cannot afford to pay I have helped as many as five a week not a whole lot but helping some might lead to the helping of more from those I have helped a pay it forward mentality and it helps me as well.

  • I bake cakes as a side job. The pre-school my child attends has a very high "low-income" family ratio. So i ask his teacher to give me the children's names that will probably not get a cake for their birthday and I do it for free and take it to them.
