Volunteer Opportunities

If you've paid any attention to me in the last year or so, you know that I volunteer at the Downtown Women's Center in the Skid Row area of Los Angeles. It's a truly amazing place, where lives are changed daily. I'm a member of Birthday Guild, which is in charge of monthly birthday parties for the residents of the center. We welcome creative and/or willing people who like parties. Let me know if you're interested in coming to a party with me.

DWC is a flurry of activity during December. This means that there are many more volunteering opportunities available. Last year I helped with the gift wrapping, but this year I have to work both nights. *sigh*

Here's a copy of the holiday wish list . . .
