Our (Awesome) Volunteer Resource List

There are many other ways to spend your spring break as a volunteer. Check out local reading programs where you can encourage young kids to read at your public library, volunteer to play games and hang out with the elderly at a nearby senior center, or even get involved with your local humane society, they always need extra help taking care of animals. 

Ultimately, you want to do something that makes you feel happy and will give you an enriching experience that will last a lifetime!  Happy Alternative Spring Break!

We love hearing from you guys. We especially love hearing from you guys when you’ve seen something on Channel One News that has inspired you to want to contribute your time, energy and resources to making an impact on a person or community.

So many of you have emailed and asked “how can I help?” that we began compiling a list. We featured several of these organizations – like Locks of Love and Salvation Army – on the Impact section of our blog.

But the list got bigger, and we realized that sharing that list could be a great resource. For example, if you’re looking for a way to get involved in your community but you’re not sure how, this list is a great place to start. Or if you’ve seen a story on Channel One News about a cause that you’d like to get involved in, this list will feature organizations directly related to what we’re covering on the show. And if you’re already really passionate about an issue – like poverty – you can use our list as a resource to educate yourself on the various organizations that support that cause.

Our list is organized by topic and we’ll be adding to it throughout the year. But if there’s a volunteer organization that you love and think other people will love, send it our way.

In the meantime…watch this space!

    Trash talk should be banned because, Some kids take it to far by trashing their family, gender, the way they play the sport. If Trash talk does get banned I think it will change a lot of the athletes attitude toward sports.
