Introduction

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.

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

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.

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...

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.

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, 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 :)

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 am open to almost anything, particularly anything to do with the arts.

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 searched "volunteer" when I was looking for groups and you guys popped up.
