I was wondering if anyone knew of where I could volunteer on Thanksgiving and X-mas eve/day. I'm really not "into" the holidays...I'm not exactly fond of my family and since I'm an atheist X-mas is pretty meaningless. Also, I'm becoming vegan so that makes things awkward and I get all kinds of nasty comments about it. So I was thinking it would just be easier and more enjoyable if I just avoided all that and spent my time volunteering at someplace like a soup kitchen or something. (I'm in Iowa BTW). Yes I googled...but haven't been able to come up w/anything.
Any ideas or anyone doing something similar?
