Volunteer to work in a disaster-stricken area outside of Virginia:
Historic Hurricane Sandy slammed New York and New Jersey. If you are interested in volunteering in response to the disaster, you can get more information here: http://www.pointsoflight.org/current-news/hurricane-sandy-update-103012
Virginia always needs volunteers, too. To begin training as a volunteer in Virginia, click here for a list of groups that could use your help. Or you can contact your local emergency management office to volunteer in your own community.
Be ready. Be willing to help.
