Give the Gift of Your Time #AltusOK #OKready #NatlPrep

The local American Red Cross and Salvation Army can always use volunteers.  There's a volunteer recruitment effort on September 20 at the local chapter office on Willard.  Call 5804825303 for details.

Community service is often one of the most rewarding ways to spend free time. During my year as a national service volunteer, I learned that giving time to your community or other communities is one of the most gratifying things you can do.

Giving your time to help communities across the country to be more prepared is incredibly important. There are many ways to do so:
This week is a great time to consider spending some time serving your community as Sunday, September 11th was commemorated as a day of service--honoring the first responders and civilians that lost their lives 15 years ago.

Whichever volunteer opportunity you choose to partake in to help prepare your community, your community will be both better prepared and thankful for it.
