Volunteering is in my DNA. My parents were active volunteers throughout their lives. They’ve done amblyopia clinics, pancake breakfasts, driven cancer patients to appointments, baked birthday cakes for college kids who are away from home, served as band boosters, PTA members and so much more. My dad was a volunteer fireman and a volunteer policeman too. With this kind of example ingrained in our family it is easy to see why my sister and I volunteer as well.
In the past I have volunteered with the March of Dimes, American Cancer Society, Manatee Food Bank, organized parades and air shows, a citywide pancake breakfast, mentored new homeschooling parents, the list goes on and on. Currently most of my volunteering centers around serving my church. I sing on the worship team, I am on the Kid’s Church leadership team, I teach Kid’s Church, I am the Wednesday Night Kid’s Club Director, I teach the 3-5th grade girls Stars Club and I am the VBS director. These weekly volunteer activities make my life full.
My purpose in life is to share the love of Christ to others and raise them up to be His disciples. I live out my purpose every day as I prepare, plan and minister to the children of RiverLife Church. As we raise up disciples we reach outside our four walls to the community around us. During this summer’s VBS we raised over $900 in cash offerings for the Heart of Florida Youth Ranch, and we held a non-perishable food drive for the Manatee Food Bank. Missions and helping those in need are at the heart of my purpose-to raise up disciples.
While you may not be on the front lines like I am there are still easy ways you can do your part to help those less fortunate than you. . Chase, through its AARP Credit Card from Chase, and the AARP Foundation are taking steps to feed those who are hungry now, while also developing long-term, sustainable solutions that proactively address the root causes of hunger among those 50 and older.
