                                            Lets talk about volunteering through the kinds of organizations weve been discussing. By volunteering we dont 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. In the last month, did you [respondent/head] do any volunteer activity through organizations? (HMONTH)

Volunteers are involved in many activities such as coaching, helping at school, serving on committees, building and repairing, providing health care or emotional support, delivering food, doing office work, organizing activities, fundraising, and other kinds of work done for no pay.
