Our community needs us to make it the best it can be. We must contribute time and effort to make sure it is clean, safe, entertaining, and enriching. Sharing just one or two hours of your time each week can have a much larger impact than you think.
Breaking it down into simple math: There are 371,224 citizens in Bell County, if just half of those volunteer for one hour per week, that is over 185,000 hours of cleaning up our county, providing meals and other necessities to families in needs, adding and improving green space, mentoring our children and young adults, helping small businesses, and much, much more.
Consider how many hours are in a single week, not including sleeping and working hours. If you work 8 hours, and sleep 8 hours, then you have 56 whole hours of free time. Sacrificing just one or two hours each week will mean very little to you, but it could completely change the community you live in.
I hope you will join me in my volunteer efforts. I post opportunities regularly on social media. Hope to see you out there soon!
