So, my new feeder run has alot less hours(about 15) than my previous run. Consequently, I have alot of "free" time. I'm interested in teaching adult literacy. Seems simple enough. Right? Background check.....flying colors. I knew I was in trouble after I met the coordinator. A nice enough lady/librarian type. I needed a little flexibility(being a UPS guy). Nope. This time/way or nothing. OK. We live in a newer neighborhood with some gang graffiti around. I see it on my daily walks. We have a graffiti task force in my city. I asked the Sup. if I could become a volunteer......my time, expense, car, paint etc. Never a call back. There is a vintage airplane museum in our city. Being a certified airplane mechanic.....could I volunteer? Little if any interest. I'm pretty confused and baffled. My wife had similar dealings at a womens shelter. She doesn't even volunteer any more. You? BTW- I directed my United Way donation this year to the public library where I tried to volunteer....we'll see if they notice. As a side note-I mentioned to the librarian/coordinator lady, I found them on the United Way website.....she didn't even know they were listed on there!
