Barb speaking now... volunteering is a huge part of our lives. At work, I am the on-site coordinator for MillerCoors bi-monthly Bonfils Blood Drives. I also collect on behalf of MillerCoors, personal care items (soaps, shampoos, etc.) to donate to local shelters for those in need. In June, out Finance team worked at a local Family Tree Center (a safe house for battered women with children). We cleaned, did yard work and performed household repairs. Last winter we worked at the Food Bank of the Rockies sorting donated food items.
The RMMC plant I work in (Rocky Mountain Metail Container) performs road side trash pick up once a quarter as well. Always some kind of volunteer work to be done.
Very personally rewarding.
