Want to make a difference, and not sure where to begin? A new website strives to bring wouldbe volunteers together with the organizations that need them. VolunteerWashtenaw.org is a project of the Blueprint for
Aging, but offers volunteer opportunities of all kinds, from tutoring to natural resource preservation, in schools and hospitals and senior centers and animal shelters. Volunteers and non-profi ts can both register with the site and create a profile, harnessing the power of social media to generate good works. And if you’re in need of inspiration, or want to share your own inspiring tale, the site offers a Story Bank, where anyone can submit their own stories of giving back. Read through the testimonials, and remember that there’s no surer path to contentment than helping others.
