Thinking of volunteering for the local soup kitchen?

Volunteers Needed For The Holiday
by Steve Wright

If the holidays were a family:
Christmas might be the father,
Thanksgiving the mother,
New Years the grandpa,
Easter the grandma.

Then we have Labor Day,
Veterans Day, Memorial Day,
4th of July, one for St. Patricks
And many more…

The good news is that we have plenty
of volunteer opportunities for
the entire family of holidays.

Using my silly family metaphor;
we are currently looking for people
to volunteer between grandpa and grandma.
