Donate to Matthew 25 Ministries

It’s time to do some Spring Cleaning! Check out Matthew 25 Ministries for donating some of your gently used clothing and items. It’ll be a great way to spend the day with your sweetie!

Walk a Hound and Get Dog Tired

If you want to help dogs, person to dog, check out this event at the Animal Adoption Foundation! You can spend a few hours with your date walking a shelter dog. It’s a great Saturday morning event, and you get to make some pup’s day. If you’re in the market for adopting, this could be a great way to meet a new friend.

For more information, check it out here.

Note: AAF also has cats that could use some mingling. You can check that out on Mondays for their Meow Mingle.

Be sure to check back each month for more date with a purpose ideas! We’ll have themed volunteer ideas as well as year-round ones.
