Introduction

I’ve lived in the Chicagoland area for 13 years. Community service has always been one of the most rewarding parts of my life.

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

I try to volunteer at least two weekends a month, mostly with Chicago Cares, the village I live in or with Ladder Up. I have also volunteered with Ronald McDonald House, One Brick Chicago and with CURE’s Remote Area Medical Clinics.

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...

Any service or activity where someone is giving back or helping others cultivates the kindness and compassion we are born with. I believe those are the qualities that help build and strengthen communities. We see people that lack kindness and compassion every day; they might feel they have strong characters or good moral fiber, but they don’t look too happy or fulfilled, not to mention their communities, whatever they may be, are often weak or broken. That’s no way to live!

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 am happy to get a ride or to transport, not a problem!

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 enjoy working with adults and/or seniors. I prefer activities that address hunger, literacy, health, the environment or economic stability.

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 found you on Meetup!

    Hi Liz, Just wanted to say it was nice meeting on Saturday. I enjoyed the conversation with you and Diane (I'm hoping I remembered her name right.). Tell her thanks for talking me into buying the goat cheese with cranberries. It can only be described as decadent!
