About

Spend Your Summer Fishing or at the Beach as a Volunteer! Really, you can volunteer this summer and spend your time fishing or at the beach, in exchange you will be asked to pick up a local fellow and drive him to Winding Trails in Farmington. If you don’t have time to spend the days fishing or sunbathing, that’s ok if you can commit to driving him there. This fellow who is legally blind and cannot drive is self-sufficient once he gets there so you don’t need to worry about dropping him off and picking him up. What a great way to volunteer with a neighbor and have a good time too.

  • a desire to help others;
