Too busy to volunteer? Some other options to giveback.

Several people mentioned they are too busy to volunteer, but want to help in a disaster.

Organizations could use your help throughout the year, not just in a disaster.

Did you know that organizations, such as the Red Cross do not receive money from the government? They are funded through donations.

  • Consider donating blood.
  • Consider emptying your loose coin bank and donating it.
  • Consider taking that old cell phone you have not used for years and donate that.
  • Are you about to purchase a new car? You can donate your vehicle as well.

Here are some local ideas on how to give back to the community, without taking much, if any of your time.
