With the start of a new year, many make resolutions to “give-back” or to volunteer in the community so I wanted to nudge any of you who may have contemplated this but have yet to find the right opportunity by talking about Gay for Good (G4G).
G4G originally started in Los Angeles in 2008 and now there are chapters in Boston, Chicago, Orange County, Pittsburgh, San Diego and San Francisco. Check out one of these local chapters and get involved. You’ll not only help make your community a better place, but you’ll be able to meet like minded individuals in an organized social setting.
With the holidays now behind us and 2012 full of potential, I wanted to tell you about a local chapter of a national organization called Gay for Good (G4G). Originally started in L.A. in 2008, there are now chapters in Boston, Chicago, Orange County, Pittsburgh, San Diego and San Francisco.
G4G organizes monthly volunteering opportunities that allows men and women the chance to give back to their local community and meet people. To find out more about these opportunities you only need to register on their website gayforgood.org or you can check them out on facebook, Gay For Good Boston.
With many of us making resolutions to get more involved, give back and or meet more people I wanted to let you know about this great group. Some of the volunteering opportunities the Boston chapter arranged in 2011 included: Rosie’s Place, Boston Healthcare for the Homeless and Community Servings, Franklin Park Zoo, Greater Boston Food Bank, Cradles to Crayons and Toys for Joys. Below are photos from 2011 activities, which typically occur on weekends. After volunteering many often go out, adding a nice social aspect to the organization that allows you to further meet the members of this group.
