Hometown, Alaska: Volunteerism

September 11th has been declared the National Day of Service – a day to adopt a charity, or do a good deed. We’re going to take a closer look at what people are doing to get involved with their community. How can people with busy lives budget the time? What organizations are most in need of volunteers? There are all sorts of organizations that rely on volunteers, from youth groups to homeless shelters, trail builders to archivists. Join us for the conversation, Wednesday  at 2:00 pm on Hometown, Alaska.
