*BONUS DAY*
One member who replies to this post will be chosen at random to WIN a CafeMom Coffee Mug!

Welcome to Day 5 of the New Year, New You Challenge!

Beginning a new year leads many of us to take stock of our lives, counting our blessings and wishing others could be so lucky. Thus, the new year can also make us itch to lend a hand and make a difference. Your local chapter of the Red Cross, the Salvation Army, churches, etc., can all be great places to lend a hand to help those who aren't so fortunate.

Do you volunteer? How do you make a difference for others in your community?

 I am an active member in the Ladies Auxiliary to the VFW and the Blue Star Mothers.  Both groups do thing for our military. We do a walk every year called Walk for the Wounded.  I knit scarf for the soldiers in Afghanstan.  We do thing for our community.  We help out at different community events.  We help put on the Memorial Day parade in our town each year.

 I used to volunteer at the library and read with the kiddos but that was years ago, I've been busy teaching my daughter how to read!   That is something I should do again though.

We do volunteer as a family.  We work at our local food bank, helping with unloading and putting away deliveries, setting up and assisting with distributions, cleanup, and the community activities that we hold through the week.
