Today is October 21st, that's "Back to the Future" Day! If you were looking back from some day in your future, what will you say you did with this day. Did you help a neighbor in need, rescue a puppy, feed the hungry or did you watch another movie on demand, play on your phone or just hang out?Channel your energy and use your free time to make a difference for a neighbor.
Volunteer with a person who is legally blind and you will look back from your future and be amazed at the fun you have! These are incredibly inspiring individuals who are living independently with some supports from volunteers for shopping, reading and sorting junk mail or just organizing materials around their house.
It's a great way to spend a few hours per month, totally flexible with no minimum commitments - no strings attached, no hovering skateboards, no Delorean, just you and your Toyota is all it takes to make a difference.
