Throughout my adult life, I've been involved in charity work. It feels so rewarding to give back to my community. Through my work with various organizations, like the ASPCA and Best Buddies, I've been able to meet some really great people.
On Sunday mornings, when I have some free time to myself, I like to devote some time to looking for new ways I can help others. I've found some really great events to volunteer at, like the March of Dimes Walk, just by looking in our local newspaper.
Well, just a few days ago, I was talking to my sister, Allison, who lives in Texas. She is also quite involved in various charities around the Lonestar State.
Allison was telling about how the United Way of Amarillo and Canyon is holding an electric fan and air conditioner drive that is starting Tuesday, May 14. United Way is a great charitable organization that is committed to making positive changes in communities through partnerships with government agencies, educational institutions and businesses.
My big sis told me that the drive is being held in order to help provide the elderly, handicapped and families with infants with electric fans and air conditioners in an effort to help them stay cool during those hot summer months that are notorious for plaguing Texas.
This drive sounded like such a good idea and I immediately wanted to know more information. Allison let me know that last year, this United Way drive helped provide over 100 families with cooling appliances.
I was so impressed with United Way's efforts that when I got off the phone with Allison, I went down to our church and spoke with our priest about starting a similar drive.
