What causes or nonprofits do you feel strongly about or want to volunteer with? (ex: hunger, the environment or Habitat) Do you currently volunteer with any nonprofits?

Especially interested in events benefitting animals or children, but that does not rule out other things. Have participated in many types of volunteer work over many years (Girl Scouts, many animal charities, Catholic Charities thrift store, environmental causes, cancer walks and fund raisers, Habitat for Humanity, etc.) Have recently gone through orientation to tutor English to refugees through Catholic Charities.

What type of volunteer work are you interested in doing? (ex. sorting or organizing, cooking/serving food, building or physical work, ect.) Do you have any special skills?

Almost anything BUT heavy lifting or physical labor. I'm very organized, have cooked for crowds, relate easily to people. I do quite a few thing pretty well - just ask.

The Serve KC Leadership Team is made up of volunteer Organizers and Event Hosts. Would you be interested in hosting an occasional event or organizing with a new nonprofit?

Sure.

What do you hope to get from volunteering with Serve KC?

I'd like to spend more of my available time to benefit good causes. I like the variety of opportunities of this meetup. I'd also like to meet some new people. Serve KC makes it easy to volunteer without doing a lot of research to find available opportunities.

How did you find out about Serve KC?

From a friend.
