Have you ever volunteered before? In what way? (Tutoring, Kids, Humanitarian, Cleanup, Nature, Animals) Still doing so?

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.

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...

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.

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!

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 :)

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?

Working with older adults, animals, those who are homeless, involved in domestic violence causes. Also, volunteering at hospitals and other medical settings.

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* :)

Meetup. I'm a member of a few other groups in west burbs.
