Volunteer Opportunity of the Week

Big Brothers, Big Sisters is a terrific non-profit that matches youngsters who have lost a parent or who have gone through difficult times, with an adult volunteer of the same gender, to provide monitored and safe mentoring and guidance. Having a mentor can often provide kids in our community with higher educational aspirations, greater confidence, improved relationships, avoidance of risky behaviors, and greater educational success. If you are interested in mentoring a kid in our community, visit: to learn more.


Won’t You Be My Neighbor?

Do you walk your dog in your neighborhood, or do you have neighbors who walk their pets? Don’t forget to clean up after your dog, or if you see a neighbor who forgot their pet clean-up bags, why not pick it up for them? It’s a nice thing to do, it keeps our neighborhoods clean and environmentally healthy, and it contributes overall to a better place to live.
