If you want to help out based on a specific topic or want to find a way to give back a few hours — or just want to find a place you can donate goods or funds — this website lets you type in your area code and find something within 15 miles (or closer) of your home.

My hope is that today’s connections might lead to more regular work and volunteering within our communities that bring greater understanding and dialogue between all of us.
