My FI and I have been looking for a way to get more involved in the community. We we’d like to find something that we could do together, and I think it would be really neat if this was something we could get started on as we start the next stage of our lives together. So I was wondering if any of you have a suggestion of a type of community service we could do :). Ideally it would be somewhat regular (1 or 2x a month), and something we could do together. Thanks for the suggestions!! 🙂

@MrsFuzzyFace: Awesome! Have you heard of Hookers for Jesus? It’s a real program in Vegas for women trying to leave the sex trade and there was a tv show about it.

My husband works on immigration, so we will very soon be volunteering at an NGO helping migrants.
couples that volunteer together stay together!

Though I do volunteering on my own, DH isn’t as active, so i have no direct experience for couples who volunteer together. However, my sister, her husband, and both their kids volunteer once a month and on some holidays at soup kitchens or food banks. She said it helps to keep everyone grounded.

@ivoryowl: My fiance doesn’t volunteer with me (mostly because our work schedules are just different enough that we couldn’t do it at the same time), but I’ve been volunteering for my local hospice for a little over 1.5 years now. I just visit with patients once a week and give them some companionship. It’s really rewarding and the patients I’ve visited have all really appreciated having someone come by to talk with them, read to them, etc.
