Friends get together do to good

“I believe everyone is generous and wants to help those that are less fortunate, but life often gets in the way and we don’t end up volunteering,” says the founder of Volunteer Club, Lisa Swayne Proud. This is the reason why Swayne Proud started the first Volunteer Club.

It works much like a book club in that each month, a different person organizes where the group will volunteer, and then emails the group with the details. “The beauty is that when you are not coordinating, all you have to do is show up for a few hours once a month. Plus, it’s an opportunity to hang out with your friends and have some fun,” says Swayne Proud.

Yet showing up for just a few hours can really add up. Swayne Proud estimates that her Club has volunteered almost 300 hours as a group. Three hundred hours may sound like a lot, but to break that down that number, a group of seven friends can easily accomplish it by working less than two hours a month for two years. Now just think about how many hours there would be if there were a couple hundred Volunteer Clubs; soup kitchens wouldn’t know what to do with themselves!
