Volunteering is a great way to help out people and animals in need!

I have been wanting to do some of that myself since I have the time now that crafting is done for the year! Finished with all my Holiday Craft Bazaars! So done selling my wares to helping out where I can! I always donate part of my sales to Gimpy Pets then I can donate to any animal that is needing some money for their medical needs and more. My last donation went to One Dog Rescue  to a cute little muffin named Marshmellow!

I did a search online for volunteering in Santa Cruz where I live. If you type in your town and the word volunteer, I am sure there is an organization that has a list of things you can do.

I clicked on the local volunteering pages “Events” section to see what I could do for this Holiday Season. I want to do something for the SPCA here. They have an adoption center in our local shopping mall. They need volunteers for their gift wrapping and for help around their storefront. Just waiting to hear back from someone on what is available to do for them.

Not only will I volunteer during the Holidays…….I plan on doing it all year long when I have free time when work is slow!

If you can do this too!!!! Then please check online for your local Volunteer Organization and see what you can do to help out! It’s a rewarding way to give the gift of your time and your skills to all that can use it!! :)

This instructional sewing pattern is easy to follow. You can also modify the size to make it a large bag or shrink it down to a tiny bag, all my just adjusting the dimensions.

Pattern PDF file is available for $5 on my ETSY page!
