Yes. Through Chicago Cares. I was a member of Alpha Phi Omega in college, a service fraternity. I've volunteered for Lakeview Food Pantry, Neighborhood Associations, Oak Park Animal Care League, Illinois Masonic Hospital, Catholic Church, Accolade Adult Daycare Center, PADs through my church, Salvation Army, serving meals. I still volunteer through the Catholic Church and have done so for many years am currently looking for some additional options.
I believe we are all responsible for one another, we are each others' eyes and ears. Moral Fiber means you have ethics and principles in which you put into play patience, open-mindedness, kindness, understanding, and it's the opposite of being self-serving. It also means being willing to recognize that you really can't understand another person until you've walked in their shoes. However, you can listen and help them with support. Someone with Moral Fiber lives the Golden Rule. Daily actions say everything. We're human, we're not perfect. Yet, we can learn amazing lessons from others.
No. However, I don't drive, but am willing to always pitch in for carpooling costs. I also know the city, downtown and North Side very well. I'm a good navigator :)
Working with older adults, animals, those who are homeless, involved in domestic violence causes. Also, volunteering at hospitals and other medical settings.
Meetup. I'm a member of a few other groups in west burbs.
Hi! Look forward to meeting new people who enjoy volunteering as well.
Doing the pledge event at WTTW was my first event. I had fun and look forward to additional events through this group!
