Looking for ways to support young people that don’t pose transportation or scheduling hassles? We’ve got you covered. Here are 10 ways to volunteer virtually while using your experience and wisdom to help kids thrive. 
1.Help aspiring college students through the entire college admissions and financial aid application process. To become a Strive for College volunteer, you simply need to create a profile on Strive’s site, complete a background check ($40) and do a one-hour training before being connected with students interested in your support. Over 90 percent of students with Strive mentors go to a four-year institution, many being the first in their family to attend college, usually with little or no debt. Read Karen’s story. 
2.Become an online volunteer for the United Nations and use your skills for global good. They have a great online portal that allows you to search for opportunities by area (research, teaching, writing, outreach and advocacy, etc.) and join the more than 12,000 online volunteers that support them each year. Search current opportunities and see if anything sparks your interest — many of the posts listed touch on issues impacting children and youth. 
3.Provide support via text to young people in crisis by becoming a volunteer with Crisis Text Line. Volunteers commit to 200 total hours, serving a recommended 4 hours/week, and undergo a six-week, 34-hour training program to ensure they feel fully prepared to deal with issues such as self-harm, suicide, depression, bullying, and gender/sexual identity. If you’ve personally overcome mental health challenges in your own life, this virtual volunteer opportunity could be the perfect way to pass it on. Read Rainy’s story. 
4.E-mentor a high-school student from a low-income community and help close the opportunity gap with iCouldBe. Students select their mentors based on the mentor’s professional experience and what the student is interested in learning more about. The mentors go through a training and then begin supporting their student through iCouldBe’s online platform for one hour per week. The focus can be on academic success strategies, career exploration, and post-secondary educational exploration and planning. 
5.Volunteer with the American Red Cross remotely in a variety of ways. You can become a digital advocate, following Red Cross on social media, engaging in conversations and helping to spread their messages to your friends, followers and community. You can start an online fundraising campaign or use your communications skills to assist the fundraising team as they research, write and execute grants. You can also work with individuals, groups and companies to recruit blood donors and promote blood drives. Learn more here. 
6.Fight childhood hunger with Feed the Children by becoming a policy advocate, using your voice to ensure policy makers hear what’s needed to defeat hunger. Stay informed on key legislative issues and get the tools you need to effectively contact your legislators here. And if you have a unique way you’d like to use your experience to be of help, email volunteer@feedthechildren.org and explain your idea. 
7.Ease an international student’s transition to America and help them improve their conversational English through weekly mentoring via video chat with Table Wisdom. This St. Louis-based social enterprise has already matched more than 90 mature adults with young people born abroad (recent immigrants and international students) and they’re currently getting ready to make many more matches beginning in the fall of 2018. It’s a great opportunity to learn about a different culture and make a new friend. Read Rey’s story. 
8.Answer phones for a suicide prevention hotline by contacting your local crisis center (scroll down to search by zip code) or learn more about how you can help someone in your life who might be in crisis by using these #BeThe1To5 action steps. You can also spread awareness of mental health issues every September, which is National Suicide Prevention Month, and encourage those in your community to donate to mental health causes. 
9.Generate additional income as an online tutor with Tutor.com. If you have a background as a teacher, professor, adjunct, PhD student, or industry professional and want to use your areas of expertise to help students learn, this could be the perfect opportunity for you. Every tutor is vetted through a rigorous screening process with subject exams, mock tutoring sessions, mentor review and third-party background check. Students range from kindergarten through college to adult learners. 
10.Provide positive encouragement to children and support their natural curiosity by joining the Granny Cloud, an online learning environment that helps children living below the poverty line in India to learn basic English and make the most of their access to the internet. While based on the ‘grandmother approach’ to emphasizes the warm, encouraging nature of the interaction, men are also welcome to join and “The Grannies” include volunteers from all walks of life. Many have retired and are passionate about working with children.

Our Lady’s Pantry - Can you help feed our neighbors? By sharing your time? “It requires a considerable effort to run Our Lady's Pantry," says Anita Bullaro, co-director of Our Lady’s Pantry, along with her husband Tom. "We could never do this work without our many helpers. Volunteers come when they can, and leave whenever they wish. No formal commitment is required. If you would like some more information about helping out, just stop in some Tuesday, Friday, or Saturday morning.” You can find us immediately south of Sun City Center Blvd., on U.S. Highway 301, in Wimauma. We are in back of the classroom building on the far right-hand corner of the Mission Center. We welcome donations of unexpired, non-perishable, nutritious food. Kindly bring your donations to the Pantry whenever it is open. "Every little bit helps," says Anita. We purchase most of our food for $.18 a pound at Feeding America, a regional food bank in Tampa Bay. Feeding America, however, supports more than 100 other food pantries in Central Florida. Sometimes there's not enough food to go around. On those occasions, we must purchase food at current market prices, considerably draining our resources. If you can help, kindly send a check to Our Lady’s Pantry — Food, c/o Our Lady of Guadalupe Catholic Migrant Mission, 16650 U.S. Highway South; Wimauma, Fl. 33598. Thank you for your help.

WANT A $$$DISCOUNT WHEN MOVING TO INDEPENDENT OR ASSISTED LIVING?
You may be causing yourself to lose out on a potential incentive! Did you know website services such as "A Place for Mom", "Caring.com", "Senior Advisor" or services such as "Care Patrol" charge the facility what is equal to the first month’s rent? Searching online for reviews locks your information in as their lead once you enter your contact information. How likely do you think the facility will be to offer you a potential discount if they must pay for the website referral too? Not likely I'm afraid. The solution is simple! Just email or call each community you are considering and ask for a brochure to be mailed to you. NOW go online and search for reviews. You will still receive the valuable information you seek and possibly save on a future incentive toward your new retirement home. Questions? Call 813-892-2990

FASTER VA CLAIMS DECISIONS!
Since you last filed a VA disability claim, VA has improved the claim process by launching the Decision Ready Claims (DRC) Program.
When you file a DRC, you can get a decision on your claim in 30 days or less by working with an accredited Veterans Service Organization (VSO). Your VSO will help you gather and submit all relevant and required evidence so your claim is ready for VA to make a decision when you submit it.
You can now file a DRC for the following claim types:
•        Direct Service Connection Claims
•        Presumptive Service Connection Claims
•        Secondary Service Connection Claims
•        Increased Disability Claims
•        Dependency and Indemnity Compensation (DIC) Claims
•        Pre-Discharge Claims
Don’t miss out on this important opportunity to get a faster claim decision. Learn more about the DRC Program, including eligibility requirements, what medical evidence you need to submit, and how to find an accredited VSO at https://www.benefits.va.gov/compensation/drc.asp. 


If you are a military veteran, dependent, or survivor and want to know more about the wide range of benefits and programs that are available to you, Hillsborough County Consumer & Veterans Services can help and there is never a fee. For information, go to HCFLGov.net/Veterans, or call (813) 635-8316. Disabled Veterans can reach our local DAV at 633-0346.

Caring for those who care – VA Caregiver Support Program values your commitment 
Caregivers play an important role in the health and well-being of Veterans, and caring for a wounded, ill, or injured Veteran is not easy work. Without family caregivers, many of these Veterans could not remain close to family and in their communities.
VA knows that family caregivers who care for Veterans in their own homes have been putting Veterans first since the founding of our nation. That’s why VA’s Caregiver Support Program provides training and education to enhance the caregiver’s role. The program focus is to improve the care-giver’s understanding of the impact their work has on the health and well-being of the Veteran they care for and their families as well as how their work affects them, too.
Caregivers who participate in VA’s Caregiver Support Program tell us that the program has helped them feel more confident in their role, that it has made them even more proficient in supporting the Veteran they care for in treatment and rehabilitation.
To learn more about the VA Caregiver Support Program, visit the Caregiver Website or call the Caregiver Support Line at 1-855-260-3274. You can also contact your local Caregiver Support Coordinator located at every VA medi-cal center across the United States.

SCC Lamplighters: There is a new group in town and I couldn’t be happier to wish them success in a project that epitomizes the spirit of the Sun City Center lifestyle. They call themselves the SCC Lamplighters and their goal is to make Sun City Center a safer and brighter place to live. If your street lamp at the foot of your driveway is burned out, they will come and replace it!  There is no charge for their labor; if the homeowner can pay for a replacement bulb, they will ask you to do so, but if you cannot pay for it, they will supply it at no cost. How wonderful it would be to look down a street in Sun City Center and see those quiet lights at every driveway.  Sound good?  Call 813-505-5927 and they will make an appointment to come to your home to replace the bulb.  


From John Bowker and worthy of sharing: There is a club in town I have never helped publicize.  Back some 5 years ago a group of people who love to fish found each other and organized a monthly schedule of meetings.  They often have guest speakers, fish fries twice a year (yes, their own fish!), along with trips out into the salt water and to the Skyway Fishing Pier and more. More information at:  castawayanglersFL@gmail.com   Their webpage is www.castawayanglersclubfl.org   or you can call Bob Preston at 813-404-5507.

A newly-built, comprehensive veterinary practice has opened at Sun City Center, Florida. Run by well-known Tampa area veterinarian Dr. Steve Harris, in addition to general practice and wellness care, the Clinic provides urgent care, internal medicine, and surgery. The new Sun City Center Veterinary Clinic offers a general small animal practice that is directly available to residents of Sun City Center — even providing direct golf-cart access — and is conveniently located for residents of close, nearby communities such as Wimauma, Summerfield, Ruskin, Palmetto, Ellenton, River Hills, and Parish. Sun City Center Veterinary Clinic held its grand opening at the beginning of June in its entirely newly-built, state of the art, patient-centered facility. Dr. Harris has practiced in the Tampa area for the last 18 years at an extensive small-animal clinic and as a general surgeon. With 35 years in professional practice, Dr. Harris began in the west with a large-animal firm, then soon moved to south Florida, where he ran two associated practices in the Florida Keys. Married with two children, three cats, one dog, and three horses, his early volunteer work with Friends of Animals and United Humanitarians set him on a course of contribution to similar organizations that continues to this day.

Ensure a Continued Safe and Loving Environment for Your Pet When You Are Gone!  Pets play an important role in our daily lives, keeping us company and giving us unconditional love. But, as we age, many of us believe that there always is a tomorrow - that we will be able to care for ourselves and our beloved pets. We assume that neighbors, family or friends will step up to the plate to care for our pets should we be unable to do so. However, in the confusion that accompanies a person’s unexpected illness, accident or death, pets may be overlooked.  The best way to assure that your wishes regarding the future care of your pets are fulfilled is to draw up a formal written arrangement, such as a will, trust or bequest, that specifically states the individual care needed for each animal. Seek out the advice and help of a professional who can assist in the preparation of legal documents.  Cat Depot has made a commitment to assist responsible pet owners with a plan that will honor their cats for life. Bequests have been made to Cat Depot, and relinquished cats have been adopted into alternate loving environments. Pet owners can feel confident knowing that the felines they love will be taken care of well after they are gone.  For more information about the Lifetime Care Program, please call (941) 366-2404. 8/13/18
