Summer of Service

8 07 2009

Happy Wednesday! Here are a couple great Chicago service opportunities that I’ve come across!

7/11: From 10:45-2p, be part of an unique grocery shopping experience! Vital Bridges runs four grocery centers across Chicago that cater to the specific dietary needs of people living with HIV. Clients fill out their grocery menu and you shop the food pantry for the items. For the details, click here.

7/25-7/27: If you speak fluent Spanish and have great communication skills, then the National MS Society could use your assistance at the Latino Expo USA and Health Fair. They will be providing information about the disease and programs and services offered by the Society. Training will be provided prior to the actual event dates. Interested? Email sarah.gross@ild.nmss.org. (Not this week, but training needs to be scheduled soon)

As always, these are a verrrry small sample of the opportunities that are out there! If you’re stuck and don’t know where to start, I would check out the following sites:

ChicagoCares.org

NewYorkCares.org

VolunteerMatch.org

Idealist.org

Serve.gov

DCCares.org

I also have some tips on jumpstarting your volunteer experience in my post “Just Volunteer. Period.

If you have a summer volunteer opportunity that you would like for me to include, shoot an email over to kb@thefabulousgiver.com! I will post them every Tuesday (or Wednesday) at the latest!
