Honoring Obama’s ‘Call to Service’

A comment I frequently hear when I am out and about is that residents want to help their community, but they just don’t know where to go. Now that Obama has called on our public service, I am hoping to provide regular information on the blog about where people can go to help.

I’ll post more as I find them. If you have any ideas, want to volunteer, or need volunteers, keep us posted.

1. One agency is Women At Work, a Pasadena-based career counseling agency aimed at helping women find work. They need volunteers Monday through Thursday. To find out how to volunteer, call 626-796-6870.

2. Cory’s Kitchen in Irwindale also needs volunteers. Cory’s Kitchen is a food bank that provides groceries to the needy. To contact them, call (626) 305-0392.

    Kinda’ sad how a post like this gets almost no comments but put up a post trashing someone and all the political hacks and their respective hangers-on come out of the woodwork to weigh in.

    Both organizations sound wonderful. I do hope more people will get up from behind their computers and DO SOMETHING POSITIVE IN THE WORLD…..rather than bitching about how F*** Up it is.
