Hi, I'm Alex, creator of Go Out and Help. When I was a freshman in high school, my school required a number of community service hours. I had volunteered previously in places that my family was associated with, but the school requirement was to volunteer at an organization that we are not a member of. I was not sure where to volunteer or what I wanted to do. Additionally, I was struck by the number of drives my school had for people less fortunate than ourselves, such as a pajama drive, a toy drive, a coat drive, and others. It seemed that there was a charity for almost anything, but how would one go about finding the charity they need? I created this website during my sophomore and early junior year of high school, in the hopes that it would help others who want to volunteer or donate but do not know where to start.
Thank you for visiting this website, and I hope I helped you find where to go out and help!
