As I mentioned in a previous column, "a small act of kindness goes a long way." Here are some volunteer opportunities in Anne Arundel County.
On Saturday, March 16 at Glen Burnie High School, you can help make a difference by volunteering at the Homeless Resource Day event from 7:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. Volunteers ages 18 and up are needed to help with various tasks. A 11/2-hour training is required for Saturday volunteers.
In addition, on Friday, March 15 from 4 to 8 p.m., volunteers ages 15 and up are needed to help with Resource Day set up, giveaways, donations and more. For detailed information and sign up, go to aacounty.org/HomelessResource. For additional information, call 410-269-4462 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Along with that, Happy Helpers for the Homeless, a nonprofit organization that provides food, clothing and toiletries to those in need, is looking for volunteers for Saturdays from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., and Sundays from 1 to 4 p.m. to help in give out bag lunches and other items in downtown Glen Burnie and Baltimore. For more information, email email@example.com or contact Bobbi Coffman at 443-433-2416 or Jeremy Putt at 301-943-3927.
For you avid bird watchers out there, Project FeederWatch is still going strong. I am still tracking the usual visitors of cardinals, dark eyed juncos, chickadees, downy woodpeckers, nuthatches and more. If you've seen any interesting bird species in Russett or elsewhere, please send me your findings at firstname.lastname@example.org.
