There are so many ways that a person can give back to their community. From building houses to help unfortunate people, to picking up litter that maybe scattered about in town, to planting trees and plants and gardens around your neighborhood, the possibilities are virtually endless.
Albert Cyprys thinks that everyone should look into volunteering at their local soup kitchen. Soup kitchens bring people together to eat a hot bowl of soup and enjoy conversation with one another. With all of the cell phone usage and texting going on today, he thinks it is important for everyone to continue to have personal, physical communication with each other, without the use of a cell phone or one form or another of social media.
Now, you don’t necessarily need to volunteer 24 hours a day, 7 days a week in order to make a difference. Just a couple hours of your time here and there will make all the difference in the world. Many people are not fortunate enough to be able to afford a hot meal every day, so Albert Cyprys feels that what he is doing by volunteering at his local soup kitchen is a great act of kindness.
You can volunteer many different ways. Try looking in your phone book or online to find a soup kitchen. Albert Cyprys recommends to everyone that they should take the step – call or email to see when they need volunteers. Whenever you have free time, you should also just show up at the soup kitchen and talk to people. Albert Cyprys thinks that volunteering at the soup kitchen has always been a rewarding experience, and he plans to continue there for as long as possible.
