What’s Good this September

What’s Good this September

WhatsGood_blog_09Fall is starting to set in, but the do-good opportunities are still out there before the cold weather sets in!

It might be time to say goodbye to summer, but the volunteer opportunities aren’t going anywhere! Add some fun to your fall with these great events. We’re back with our monthly “What’s GOOD?” series, giving you a rundown of other volunteer opportunities besides our regularly scheduled events. If you’re missing a Community Bucket event this September, or if you just need more volunteering in your life, we’ve got you covered. All you need to do is contact the organization or show up (details for each are included below). You can even invite other CB-ers to go with you, but you don’t need to register through us to attend.
