Today’s giving: Filled out an application for volunteer work at the Tigard Good Neighbor Center, a shelter for families.
Admittedly, this doesn’t immediately give a thing to anyone. But it does give me an opportunity to mention the need to do the paperwork. I don’t plan to volunteer with the center for a little while, but when I am ready I will be able to start right away.
We sometimes avoid volunteering because of the little things. But applications are not difficult, and most charitable organizations require some sort of background check.
Paperwork should not prevent doing good things in the community.
