The recent thread about what SAHM who have time on their hands inspired me. I’d like to get involved in volunteer work in Lakewood. Maybe a few hours a week, does anyone have any info about which organizations I could contact.

Thank you! I think helping families struggling with illness speaks to me.

what type of volunteer work do they need. I may also be able to do some work. I prefer something that does not involve a lot of driving.

Driving is a huge chessed. DD has a daily therapy appointment and the official drivers charge a lot, which I understand, but it's not affordable.

It's specifically for people with down syndrome or for kids who have a sick family member?
