Animal volunteer opportunities in the Cleveland and Akron areas

Help Animals in Need: Ohio Volunteer Opportunities for Kids

Here are some animal organizations in the region that are in need of help:

Looking to introduce your children to helping others? Animal shelters, rescues and other organizations are in need, whether it’s to adopt from their facilities, lend a hand or drop off food or supply donations. It’s a great summer family project. Kids can pitch in by raising funds through a lemonade stand (see how on pg. 10) or doing chores around the house. Put on a neighborhood yard sale in which some of the sales go directly to support the cause. If you donate supplies, have the kids go shopping with you and let them pick out the needed items. Also, make sure they deliver in-person to their favorite animal cause. read more

What to pack for your college student's dorm room

Essential Dorm Details Missing from Your College Student’s Packing List

She’s the only one

High school was hard. You’re struggling to find out who you are in a building with hundreds of other kids. If you’re lucky, and I was, you find a core group of girls that become your best friends. You grow up together. In college, you meet all new friends and struggle to maintain ties with your best friends from high school. In your twenties…. oh, your twenties…. you actually find out who you are and for better or worse, who your real friends are. They are a mix between the high school girls and the college girls. This whole process highlights who is really there for you and by nature your “group” becomes smaller. As you reach the end of your twenties, you meet your husband (your new best friend) and you get married. Insert another struggle to maintain ties with your girlfriends who may or may not be married as well. And then you have kids. read more
