Are you serving your community today?

When was the the last time you volunteered?

I've never heard of this.  I'm not doing anything today but  I am one of the class moms for dd's gr 4/5 class and I do other volunteering at the school.

I went to the Martin Luther King Jr. Day parade today.
I didnโ€™t volunteer today.

My previous church is good at letting members know about volunteer opportunities in the community. I still get the emails so I am aware of what I could have done today... I chose to go to the parade today instead.

I probably could have done both, but honestly itโ€™s just to cold to go out of the house today.

I think the Day of Service started about ten years ago.

My daughters both had service projects at church, and we all went to a worship service honoring Dr. King.   Seems like an appropriate thing to do on this day.

Never heard of this but we do one Boston day in April. Along the same idea, serve the community on 4/15 (anniversary of the Boston marathon)

The day isn't a holiday in Canada.

I didn't do anything service-wise.

It's been a couple years since I did any volunteering. I used to help out in the elementary school's library, as well as the middle school's. I did about 3 years of helping in the classrooms. And there's the 9 years I spent as either a den leader or asst. den leader in Cub Scouts, and the 4 years as a Girl Scout cookie mom.

I think I got kinda burnt out on volunteering. I'll eventually get back into it somehow.
