Make a New Year's Resolution to Help Your Community

Posted: Updated:
GREAT FALLS -

Its now 2014, and you know what that means. Its time to really test our New Year's resolutions. And no, we are not talking about getting fit, we are talking about volunteering. For starters, Athena Nedens, from the Great Falls Rescue Mission, says they could really use your help and it doesn't take much to contribute. With volunteer orientations every other week, they are ready to welcome you with open arms. Right now they are looking for people to help with everything from life skills training to Easter egg hunts. All you need to do is give them a call.

The Great Falls Animal Shelter is also in need of more volunteers. As you would probably expect, there are tons of dogs to walk, but your help could go a lot further than that. Ashly Graham, from the shelter told us that they, "also have fundraisers and adoption promotions people can help with if they just want to help with that side of things. If anyone is good with sowing or graphics, things like that. Just what ever your trade is."

Being a good neighbor could also be something simple like notifying the police department if anything is going wrong in our community. The GFPD VIPs Program was made for just that, so any one can help supplement, support, and engage with the police. In order to be an official member, you must be 18 or older and pass a background check.

So whether its working with police, animals or those in need, there are many ways to help out your community. Here's a cheer's to 2014 folks! Lets make it a good one!
