Have you previously volunteered your time for a cause or do you currently volunteer somewhere on a regular basis? Is there an organization you would like to volunteer for?

Yes we have volunteered at Shawnee Community Services, Advice and Aid Center, Animal Haven. Our daughter goes to Catholic HS and is required to have so many service hours each year as part of her grade. I love that it gets her out there to help people in all different ways and to learn how to give back! We used to volunteer as a family. This is something that my daughter and myself will continue to enjoy to do together when we can - help us to continue to support each other and heal as well! Our daughter also plays compettive travel softball so sometimes it's hard to organize volunteering for her or both of us. Hopefully this will help and something we will enjoy continuing to do together. We have had SO many blessings in our lives since the passing of Bill - in ways you cannot even imagine and from friends and loved ones. I love Casey and I being able to give out not only to help out others - but I believe in paying it forward!! AMEN!

What skills, hobbies, or interests do you have that could help a non-profit charity? (i.e. construction, photography, website, computers, communications, etc.)

What Julie C. is saying about this Meetup Group

So glad we found Serve KC. Not only does my daughter get service hours for her HS requirements but it allows her to help in SO many different ways and a variety of different activities - plus it's so nice that it's things that her and I can do together :)
