I have actively volunteered since I was in middle school, but as an adult I have not done much. I would always feel compelled to donate money to the United Way and to disaster relief. When I moved to Austin they recommended I get out and volunteer so I can meet people. I did not start volunteering until three years later by contacting the city volunteer center. At the time I did it was working two jobs, but would still manage to get out there and help my community.
I continue to volunteer in the community especially now during the holidays. I would suggest contacting your local community volunteer center and if there is not one I would say United Way would be a great place to start.
