Hometown: North Carolina
January 7, 2012
I'm originally from the North Carolina and moved to Chicago a few years ago. I've always enjoyed volunteering, but fell out of the loop. I've got the social good itch and would love to get involved more in the community as well as meet new people.
Yes, I've volunteered before. More so when I was growing up and through high school. Occasionally in college I also would volunteer. I've done work at the hospital, soup kitchens, and non-profits.
The saying "actions speak louder than words" definitely holds true. I think that we can say a lot, but really getting out there and doing something takes a lot more. Having moral fiber to me means that you not only care about yourself, but also humanity. I also think that it has a lot to do with doing what is right, which may not always be the easier path.
No, I am not new to Chicago. And yes, depending on the location of an event I might be interested in a carpool. I am dependent on the CTA... which is a love/hate relationship :)
I am open to almost anything, particularly anything to do with the arts.
I searched "volunteer" when I was looking for groups and you guys popped up.
