Extraordinary Volunteer

We all know that one volunteer at school or the library. The room mom that goes beyond the call of duty. Or the mom or dad that is always at the school helping out. How about those pink coat ladies at the hospital? When I delivered flowers as a teenager, I use to see them all the time.I would love to volunteer more. I like to volunteer for class field trips and specific functions at the school. But with work, blogging and everything else that needs to get done, I don’t have a lot of time leftover.

Carolina Pad and VolunteerSpot.com have teamed together to make National Volunteer Week special for those people who do the dirty work and don’t get the recognition they deserve. VolunteerSpot is a FREE online resource for volunteers to organize events, a soccer season, church fundraiser and many, many more other volunteer events. VolunteerSpot’s FREE online signup sheets make it easy for anyone to schedule and coordinate parent volunteers — say goodbye to reply all email and clipboard sign up sheets this spring

I would like to highlight my cousin Merilee. I’ve just gotten to know her over the past year and she is always volunteering to help out. She has been helping my mom find a place in St. Augustine. She has already volunteered herself to help clean and paint. She even volunteered her house for a week last summer. Merilee is sweet, kind and super friendly. She always has a smile on her face and is always willing to lend a hand.

Thank you Merilee!
Who is your special volunteer?
My cousin and myself will each receive a notebook for posting about this awesome contest!


I'm a mother of 2 who likes to get involved in too much! Besides writing here I started a non-profit, I'm on the PTO board, very active in my community and volunteer in the school. I enjoy music, reading, cooking, traveling and spending time with my family. We just adopted our 3rd cat and love them all!
