Looking for Volunteer Opportunities?
Are you interested in volunteering your time for a good cause in San Carlos, but don't have a clue what do to, or where to start? That's exactly the problem that White Oaks resident Dena Myers faced this past year. After moving to White Oaks nearly 5 years ago and completely falling in love with her neighborhood and community, she felt compelled to give something back. But with small kids, a teenager and a hectic schedule, it wasn't easy to find family-appropriate volunteer opportunities that fit their needs. So she took matters into her own hands…
Introducing “Make a Difference in San Carlos”
Utilizing the web service Meetup.com, Dena has created a dedicated page for volunteering right here at home:
This special-purpose social-network site makes it simple for people to suggest ideas for volunteering, organize an event, or even connect with other meet-up groups in the area. One idea that Dena is considering as the inaugural event is delivering flowers from our own Farmer's Market and hand-made cards to residents at the San Carlos Elms. How cool is that?
So be sure to check out Make a Difference in San Carlos. There is no obligation to participate in any specific activity upon joining — the group simply offers opportunities for community involvement. But it's easy to see how a small group of people can make a big difference in our town.
