If you live in the Denver metro area, Ryan Frazier, a Republican candidate for Colorado’s 7th Congressional District, is advertising a volunteer opportunity for you that does not involve stuffing envelopes, knocking on doors or waving signs. Rather, it’s a way to help those in the community who are struggling during these difficult economic times:
Please join us on Monday, November 23 from 9:30am – noon as we volunteer our time at the JeffCo Action Center. We will be helping to sort and box food in their warehouse 8035 W. Colfax Avenue in Lakewood. The JeffCo Action Center needs to know how many of us to expect, so please RSVP by clicking here or emailing Marc Massey at email@example.com by noon on November 20.
If you’re interested in joining them and able to do so, that means you have until tomorrow to sign up. Whether you can take advantage of this particular opportunity or not, I trust it inspires in you some way to embrace the gratitude, selflessness and generosity of the season by doing something tangible to help someone needier than you.
Pure and undefiled religion in the sight of our God and Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their distress, and to keep oneself unstained by the world.
I Thessalonians 5:16-18
Rejoice always; pray without ceasing; in everything give thanks; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.
