Shane Lowney is a mechanical engineer by day, but in his free time, he enjoys volunteering for charities in the Tampa Bay area, where he lives. He frequently works with his wife, Christine, to help these organizations with whatever they need. In the past, he has worked at homeless shelters, soup kitchens, animal shelters, and more. He has also donated money and necessary goods when he has not been able to spend time at these organizations. Many people believe they don’t have time to volunteer for charity, but here’s how Lowney incorporates it into his schedule.
- If you have a busy social life, see if you can get your friends to volunteer for charity with you. This is a fun way to hang out together and do something good for the community. Brainstorm and find a cause you are all passionate about, and then spend a weekend afternoon helping out. You’ll be surprised how fun it is to work with others on these projects.
- See if you can get your company involved in volunteering. Many organizations spend time on charity initiatives together. See if your employer would be willing to let you organize a dedicated group of volunteers or even sponsor a charity. By making this part of your work responsibilities, it is much easier to find time to do it.
- If you absolutely cannot find the time to contribute to charity, see if there are any local organizations in need of goods like canned food, clothing, or toiletries.
