Assets in Action: Get involved, make a difference

-A A +A
By Bernadette Lauritzen

The month of April is National Volunteer month and you still have plenty of time to get involved with what can be a life changing opportunity.

There are many exciting things taking place and many still ahead, right in our community. This week to celebrate Good Deeds Day, the youth at the Los Alamos and White Rock Activity Centers made, “blessing bags.”

It was novel to some to explain that you could give it to someone that asks for money on a street corner. At the same moment, another student told me that on his grandmother’s birthday every year, the family gets together and makes them. His gift of sharing the story, may have created a lovely new tradition for my family.

The Los Alamos Retired and Senior Organization has an entire program dedicated to volunteers. Their volunteers spend thousands of hours in our community doing a variety of jobs. The make and serve snacks at the local blood drives, coordinated volunteers to ring the bell for the Salvation Army and LA Cares, volunteer as Big Brothers and Sisters and even staff the welcome spots and help with lunch at both centers.

The Los Alamos Volunteer Association has a special celebration this month just to say thank you.
