Do you enjoy helping others? Do you have few hours to spare once a month or even once a year? Do you want to volunteer but can't find opportunities that fit your schedule? Are you interested in volunteering but can't commit to 20 hours a week for a year for the same organization?

Capital District Volunteers Meetup group is for individuals with a passion for helping others and helping non-profit organizations but who can't or don't want to commit to long-term volunteering. This group will provide a variety of volunteering opportunities to assist different non-profit organizations. Come join us and find a match for your volunteering interests. We will volunteer with local parks, animal shelters, food banks, and other groups.

According to an article in Whole Living magazine, "studies show that those who volunteer report better mental health than those won't don't." (Nov. 2010)

"Volunteering can be an exciting, growing, enjoyable experience.  It is truly gratifying to serve a cause, practice one's ideals, work with people, solve problems, see benefits, and know one had a hand in them"  --Harriet Naylor

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
