Recently our center was addressed by our district manager in which he stated that when he plans a meeting for his managers he always schedules an extra day so that they can go into the community and "volunteer". Is it really volunteering if you are getting paid from your job? How many hourly people have time to volunteer, let alone attend or help out at a child's event? This is the poll question on UPSERS.com this month-- My summer volunteer plans include:.. I wish we as drivers could schedule time after 5PM, off the clock, to volunteer in our communities. With 10+ hour planned days that makes that a little hard if not impossible.. I am not complaining, just making a point..
