We never know the path others are traveling

It saddens my heart that so many are sick and so many are dying. May we at this time pause and have a moment of silence for those that we have lost. They are our family members, friends

In This Issue: Serve Daily – April 2020

Remember to use be kind to change the world for the better. Learn about many people doing great things to serve their neighbors as we stand together while staying apart.

r By Jasmine Reynolds

Being a volunteer for Circles blesses the lives of volunteers and participants as it fosters self-reliance and builds friendships. It is a nationwide organization that helps individuals and families overcome poverty and reduces reliance on government assistance. Circle’s newest site in Salem is in need of five childcare volunteers and 20 allies.

Circles Salem Coach Jessica Awbrey praised the South Utah County community saying, “South Utah County is such a powerful, service-oriented community, which is why I was so excited for Circles to start up a new site in Salem. The stronger the community, the stronger [the] … difference we can make for those living in our community.” She added, “Circles is a great way to get involved and directly make a difference in the lives of others.”rCircles participants are expected to take the lead in their own lives. They are people who are ready and willing to change but need some help and encouragement. As a volunteer for Circles, you can help provide that encouragement.

There are many ways to become involved; weekly meetings require childcare volunteers, dinner and community helpers. Another way to help is to be assigned as an ally to encourage and support a participant. As you build your friendship, you might advise someone who wants to start a small business, help someone apply for college, or be a cheerleader for someone paying off debt.rCircles is a perfect service opportunity for families. After enjoying dinner as a family, kids can attend the Children’s Program while their parents volunteer. Preparing and donating a meal is also a great way to get children involved in hands-on service. If you or someone you know would be interested in serving as part of Circles Salem, contact Lindsay at VolunteerConnection@CommunityActionUC.org or call us at 801-691-5287.
