    All these posts go to prove that there are a lot of good things happening, some small and some really large efforts but they all make a difference.

    I'm still acclimating to my new home town, and plan to volunteer more in the future.

    I currently volunteer one day a week (4 hours) at the public library. I really enjoy it; lots of little kids, friendly people, mindless busy work.
    I am also a Friend of the Library and do occasional volunteering with them - weeding the library garden and helping to set up the book sale.
    I'm taking course through OLLI (an adult education program) and have volunteered for a couple of events there.

    I also do some individual stuff - picking up dog poop and litter along the alleys and in the parks, making seed bombs (native wildflowers/pollinators). Whenever I walk downtown I take a handful of quarters and some one dollar bills and spend time talking with the homeless.

    In general, I prefer to volunteer for one-time gigs - like a day removing invasive plants or helping to rebuild trails. I do plan on becoming an emergency response volunteer, but the training hours conflict with my regular job.
