April 15-22 is National Volunteer week and a time to help those in need.
I myself am grand knight of St. Anastasia Knights of Columbus Council #5911 in Douglaston, and my members and myself are involved in many charitable activities.
There are many civic, religious, community and political groups in need of volunteers. There is also a need of volunteers at food pantries and food kitchens, not to mention a need for blood donations all year long.
So volunteer, even if only a few hours a month. Those you will help will be glad that you did.
