55) Let's talk about volunteering through the kinds of organizations we've been discussing. By "volunteering" we don't mean just belonging to an organization. We mean doing unpaid work. Some volunteering is ongoing, such as coaching, helping at school, serving on committees, building and repairing, providing health care or emotional support, counseling, delivering food, doing office work, and weekly church work. Other volunteering is occasional, like neighborhood clean-ups, fund raising drives, and special activities during the holidays.
