Are you new to the community? Or maybe just want to make more friends? Today’s show is a two-fer. Because you can meet people and make friends while making a difference. Volunteers are vital to so many organizations in Bloomington. And we are lucky enough to have a city government that recognizes that. In fact, in 1980, when then Mayor Frank McCloskey established the Bloomington Volunteer Action Center, it was only the 2nd center of its kind in the country (the first being New York City). So the belief in the value of Volunteering runs deep in Bloomington. How can you get involved? What are the requirements? How can you get your kids or entire family involved? We discuss these questions, along with how non-profits can take advantage of this resource, with the Director of the Bloomington Volunteer Network on this episode. Tune in and make a difference!
Also, we throwback to At Home in Bloomington, Episode 29 with Cheryl Smith of Consider it Done Transition Services. Learn how to declutter and put some of your unneeded items to good use with local non-profits. And in our REAL-List segment, learn about a popular technique buyers use to reduce the money out of pocket at closing! Sounds like a good deal!
