So, it's 2019, we've all made those New Years resolutions, that we will probably break or not ever even do... right?  I do have one resolution I am locking into my calendar 100%!.  I've decided to devote more of my time to volunteering. In order to do that I've done the following steps, to ensure I make it!

Step 1-Set a specific amount of hours per month(in my case, 4 hours a month)

Step 2-Identify causes important to you(tons of local charities that need help--see below).

Step 3-Check in with the charity , to see what their volunteer needs are

Step 4-Budget your volunteer time and lock it into your Calendar(with reminders)

Step 5- Volunteer, feel good and help the community!

Ok, so what charitie(s) should you help?  Here is a list of some local charities in the Boise area.
