Volunteer, Sacramento!

Mayor Kevin Johnson of Sacramento is asking YOU to be the change in your community and join the Mayor's Volunteer Challenge. Volunteer Sacramento is partnering with Hands On Sacramento and they have set a goal to make Sacramento the number one city in the state for volunteerism.

Getting involved is easy to do. Simply join the Mayor's Volunteering Team, and start volunteering your time! All they're asking is for you (us) to donate as little as 10 hours this year. That's less than an hour each month! Those 10 hours translate into an economic contribution of more than ten million dollars back into our city. Think about that... just a little of your time to give a lot back to your community.

Here at Roni Deutch, A Professional Tax Corporation we have our own Community Action Committee where we donate time, items, and money to local organizations each month.
Last month we collected blankets and warm winter clothing for The Effort, A Family Resource Center here in North Highlands, California. We were able to donate seven large bags full of winter items valued at $1,000! You can see pictures of that day here on my Flickr account.

This month (March, 2010) we are organizing an Easter Egg Drive to benefit the Ronald McDonald House Charities. Your volunteer act doesn’t have to be on a grand scale. Sacramento is full of organizations and non-profits that you could help for one hour a month! Some on-going volunteer opportunities are located at the Hands On Sacramento website.
