Introduction

HI- I'm Mary Ellen. I'm looking for opportunities to get more involved with the Tampa community and give back.

With which organizations have you volunteered in the past?

New to volunteering, hoping to get more involved.

Do you have any specific areas in which you prefer to volunteer (homeless, handicapped, children, elderly, etc.)?

I'm open to anything. I teach students with disabilities for a living and I have a father who has suffered from dementia for the last 7-8 years, so I probably have the most to offer in those areas. I am allergic to most animals, so animal rescue probably wouldn't be a good fit for me.

Can you recommend organizations/projects with which you would like to work?

I would like to work with children. One of my students was diagnosed with cancer last year. I enjoyed working with the Children's Cancer Network to raise funds and awareness in our community. Alzheimer's and dementia awareness is close to my heart as well because of my dad. I had to learn everything on my own so I'd love to offer my knowledge/support to those going through the same.

How did you learn about our group?
