Georgia – Volunteering for Single Mothers

It’s always good when you want to help out the community and sometimes you need every dime you can get, yet you don’t really have any items to donate. So your next best option is volunteering in some way and the best part of that is you enjoy volunteering and you want your kids involving in volunteering too. Volunteering helps out your community and helps everyone involved feeling better about themselves, mentally and physically. Now in theory, this is a good idea but sometimes the search process can be frustrating and deciding what you want to volunteer for can be even more of a stress. The last thing you need is more stress and indecisiveness in your life so anything to make the decision easier is good.

So with that being said, I have high hopes that I can at least help you somewhat with that and make it a little bit easier for you. While the list will be small, it will give you a good idea of some of the causes you can help and volunteer for. It will be resourceful for you to see and maybe you will volunteer for one of the option I list for you.

Atlanta Hospital Volunteer Opportunities

This is a volunteering opportunity for people who want to support children who are sick in hospitals. Volunteers will be responsible for being a ‘friend’ to a child and their families while they’re sick. There are also options to donate toys and such for these children so you can do that every so often as well.

Georgia Aquarium: Volunteer

This opportunity is for those who love the aquatic life and those who want to help out aquatic life. Volunteers were be taught be professionals in different areas that they qualify for and they’ll be assigned to a program that fits their qualifications.

Atlanta Community Food Bank

This is a food bank opportunity and I always like to include these in volunteer opportunities. The purposes of these are obviously and they are always helpful to community and people in need. I always suggest giving these a chance or considering them to volunteer at.

Georgia Start Parks: Volunteer

This is good opportunity if you’re into opportunities involving the outdoors. With these opportunities, you volunteer in a one opportunity or another including picking greeting people, cleaning up parks, and other opportunities for you to consider.

Hands On Atlanta

This option allows for you to search for your volunteering opportunity by your zip code. This is a good way for you to search for different opportunities that way you can choose between different opportunities and find exactly what you.

I realize this list was rather small compared to the thousands of opportunities out there but I encourage you to do your own search. I also encourage you to ask around your community, around your kids schools, and around your work place to see if they know of volunteer options for you. Whichever way you decide to go about it, I am confident you will find an opportunity of your choice as long as you don’t get discourage and keep up the search.
