I volunteer for several organizations and I love it.
Have you ever volunteered before? In what way? (Tutoring, Kids, Humanitarian, Cleanup, Nature, Animals) Still doing so?
I currently volunteer for a couple of conservation/animal related groups as well as the local chapter of a large social justice organization.
What do a person's day-to-day actions REALLY say about them? What do the words MORAL FIBER mean to you? Tell us what you think...
A person's day to day actions? That's tricky...good people can be too preoccupied or in a bad place to do service or live their convictions, and complete pieces of dung will "do good" out of narcissism or manipulation. Moral fiber is something that is proven to others over time, in a variety of situations, not just helping at a soup kitchen occasionally.
Are you new to Chicago? Might you need or can you help carpool? As a fun community of members, transport to non-city events never ends up a problem!
I might need to carpool D:
Occasionally outside groups contact us looking for help. Is there a specific type (animals, kids, etc) of volunteering you would like us to keep you mind for in these situations?
I have animal handling experience (five years at an animal shelter)
Where did you hear about our group? A Current Member (who)? Meetup link/email? Flier? Speech? Facebook? Other? (Specific answers will help us & the number we reach out to *GROW* :)
I just looked around Meetup.
