Volunteering is not only great to do; it helps others, helps our world and is important for experience and resumes. Volunteering is a great way to get involved in activities and team bonding with a group.
One way to find volunteer opportunities in your area is to go to www.volunteermatch.org. The site gives you many options so you can search for and find an opportunity that is right for your group.
Organizations that I recommended:
• Women for Women International
• Hope Chest
• Feed My Starving Children

I took the Augsburg College Dance Team and the Ascending Star Dance Team to Feed My Starving Children. We had a great time, got to know each other, and packaged food that was sent to children all over the world.
From the Feed My Starving Children website:
Feed My Starving Children is committed to feeding God's starving children that are hungry in body and spirit. Our approach is simple: Volunteers pack nutritious meals made up of rice, soy, vitamins, and dehydrated vegetables. We partner with relief organizations worldwide to distribute these meals to starving children. As a Christian non-profit, we hope to reduce the number of starving children throughout the world by working to instill compassion in a generation that hears and responds to the cries of those in need. We invite you to join us in this important work.
