Perks of volunteering
My Giving Back
on May 12, 2009 3:06 PM
Hello, all. Well, our economic downturn has had me reluctant to discuss volunteering
lately, as I imagine many of us are preoccupied more with paid work and shrinking incomes.
However, a friend asked me this morning to describe what perks might be available when
volunteering at our local art museum [Seattle] [I am a volunteer there]. This is indeed
something to consider when thinking about volunteering ones time for a worthy cause:
e.g., at the museum, I never will have to pay admission [typically $13 a pop, slightly
discounted for seniors], I get 15% discounts on purchases I make at the gift shop [30%
for a month around Christmas time] and restaurant, I get occasional freebie guest passes
to treat friends, I get discounts at other stores & events in the community, and I get a free
cup of coffee or tea each time I volunteer.
Does anyone else here who volunteers [wherever] care to share the perks available to them?
In my case the free admission and freebie guest passes are fun cost-savers for me.
