The holiday season is always the time of giving. People consider
the holidays as the time of the year to volunteer. We encourage
people to volunteer as much as possible, but not just during the
Soup kitchens are always popular places to volunteer during the
holidays but they need volunteers all year. We know from personal
experience that while classes are in session, there seems to be no
free time and that breaks from school seem the only times possible
to give those hours of volunteering. But by contacting local
volunteer centers, even the busiest students can find out how to
give their time. The Office for Service-Learning and Volunteer
Programs can help students find volunteer opportunities and find a
number of causes to support.
Fort Collin’s Open Door Mission usually has so many people
wanting to volunteer during the holiday season that it has to turn
people away, but then finds much fewer people willing to volunteer
during post-holiday season in January and February.
So volunteer during the holiday season as much as you can, but
remember that giving feeling year round.
