Have you supported a local charity with money or your time? And who was it?

Asked by Tropical_Willie (17101 points ) July 11th, 2012

We support several soup kitchens and shelters for both people and animals. We volunteer time and donate money. Who do you support and is it money or time or… ?

I often go to the neighborhood car washes held by school clubs and other charities.

I make small donations to the local Humane Society, our public library (badly underfunded) and the local land conservancy. I volunteer at the film club and the historical society.

Unfortunately, I travel too often and have great difficulty scheduling my time so I seldom do charitable work. A few years ago I was very active in the Rotary club. I spent many hours talking up donors and working on projects. By the time I finished my term as President, we raised and donated at least 6 times more money than we ever had and started a number of standing projects like college scholarships.

When I started my term, I promised to donate everything in our treasury to local and international charitable work. I am proud to say “we spent it all” and found ways to get much more to fund our charity work.

I help out on the hotline for the rape crisis center, and do some stuff for one of the oral history associations. I also donated my car to the local radio station when it was time for it to go to car heaven.

I have donated time and money to many different charities over the years. At the moment I donate to well digging to provide clean water for all and locally I groom dogs at the RSPCA hoping that will give them a better chance to be adopted. I also donate food to assorted animal rescue groups.

We volunteer with the Coalition to Unchain Dogs, and participate in fundraising events for the two local ASPCAs.

I’ve worked with both Christian-based soup kitchens (that served food to everyone regardless of religion) and local chapters of Food Not Bombs (that serves rescued vegetarian food to everyone).
