Opportunity Knocks ~ How Will You Answer? : September 5th, 2014

We're back with a whole host of volunteer opportunities, and requests for donations of tangible items.  

Our community is a very busy one. We have a whole host of volunteer opportunities, as well as some requests for donations of items that various groups are collecting.  I'd like to do my part in reminding people that giving back isn't always about money - though there is certainly opportunity for that as well - and it's not always a life-long commitment of hours - sometimes, it is saving bottles, or soup can labels for a fundraiser, perhaps repurposing still usefull items to an organization that needs it,  or even donating un-used craft supplies to an area program or project.  So many initiatives that most aren't even aware of are out there just waiting for you to answer their call. 

I encourage you to do your part to pitch in also, even if for today, your part is sharing the link to this blog post with a friend who might be able to help.  Let social media work it's magic, and let's do our part to support any way we can in our community! 

Do you have an opportunity to share? Please send it to

Thank you for supporting me in my efforts to support all the wonderful things happening in our communities.  

Cheers!  ~ Tammy
