Volunteering, Charity Work, and Community Service Posts by Members only

How do you give back to your community and engage with the social issues most important to you? This is a place to share ideas for directly helping worthy causes and people in need, to spread information about volunteer opportunities to others, and to receive feedback about the quality of service organizations. It's also a place to discuss the stress of charity work and to help support one another with related frustration, struggles, and burnout.
