It’s that time of year! People have made (or are still making) their New Years resolutions and are probably already struggling to keep them! When people make a New Years resolution, they usually tend to cut back on things that are negative, such as fast food!
However, this year, I have a different idea for you! I am suggesting that you RESOLVE TO DO GOOD and volunteer for your community with Keep Akron Beautiful in Akron, OH. Last week, I sent out an email blast and updated our website with an entire list of volunteer opportunities that we have available in 2013. Our list of opportunities has something that will peak everyone’s interest. When choosing an opportunity, pick something based on your interests or your passions so that you will enjoy it!
If you resolve to do good (and volunteer) in 2013, you will have the opportunity to improve yourself AND your community, while having a large impact on Keep Akron Beautiful! The sense of pride, satisfaction and accomplishment that you will feel when you are finished will make you want to come back time and time again.
We want to take this opportunity to THANK our current volunteers and to WELCOME potential volunteers this year. We cannot wait to meet you! Please check out our volunteer opportunities and feel free to contact me at the KAB office if you have any questions. I look forward to meeting you this year!
