I firmly believe in giving back to the community, and I encourage others to do the same. These are organizations I’m affiliated with who would love to have you on their volunteer roles. Rack up some good Karma by volunteering with one of these organizations!
Virginia Beach Art Center: You can be part of the creative community whether or not you make art of your own. VBAC has volunteer opportunities for receptionists and docents, as well as the need for many technical skills, such as marketing support.
Tidewater Arts Outreach: If you have a creative talent you can share, I encourage you to get on the “instructor” rolls with Tidewater Arts Outreach. You can help provide art-based programs (visual arts, music, dance) for seniors, low-income children and other under-served populations in our community.
C.A.R.E.S. Volunteer Driver Program: If you have some free time and want to have a high impact, one person at a time, become a volunteer driver. You’ll be able to give as a many rides as your own schedule accommodates, and provide a tremendous service to others at the same time. I especially encourage drivers from the 23456 and 23454 zip codes to sign up because we have a dire need for rides at Sullivan House, a low-income senior residence in the Red Mill area of the city.
