I CHENEY FREE PRESS Thursday, October 22, 2015 NEWS As Lewis Carroll once said: "One of the secrets of life is that all that is really worth the doing is what we do for others. " While opportunities abound to serve in the community, it's diffi- cult to identify those opportunities. JustServe.org provides a way to easily find and connect needs with resources. Registration is simple and free. Through JustServe.org, volunteers can access service opportunities and JUSTSERVE events in their neighborhood, town or city. Once registered, they can browse service opportunities and email up- dates will deliver new local service opportunities to your inbox. "The most important concept that I have learned is that there are so many people in our Community that care about humanity," Maureen Moberly, Cheney representative of the JustServe organization, said in a news release. "The volunteers come from all walks of life, and from many different religions, but share one goal: to care and give to those in need." Moblerly and her husband Gill have had many opportunities to serve. One experience that touched their lives greatly was participating in the "Journey to Bethlehem" (JTB), a service to the Cheney community organized by The Seventh Day Ad- ventist Church. In JTB, volunteers set up a live nativity for anyone to attend and be touched by the story of the birth of Jesus Christ. Many volunteers are needed each year to wrangle the live animals, set the stage and lighting, and perform to make this event a success. Many in the community have already experienced the joy of serv- ing through opportunities found on JustServe.org. Volunteers using JustServe recently helped by sort- ing donated food for Feed Cheney and 2nd Harvest food banks, sorting clothing for Cleone's Closet, which supports women in need in Airway Heights, painting and helping build local churches and serving food at EWU's "Welcome Back Breakfast" for faculty and students. It's easy to register on JustServe. org and to find service opportunities in local neighborhoods that support worthy causes; it's equally easy for worthy causes to seek local volun- teers through JustServe. The common consensus of participants is that ev- eryone felt uplifted and strengthened by the act of giving. As Ralph Waldo Emerson once said, "The greatest gift is a portion of thyself." For more information contact the Moberlys at maureenmoberly@juno. corn or simply navigate to JustServe. org. The website has been created as a public service from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. Cleone's Closet in Airway Heights is just through volunteers from JustServe org. one Contributed photo by Maureen Moberly of many organizations to benefit i, FROM STAFF AND NEWS SOURCES Zimmerman American Ninja Warrior video online It's official - Medi- cal Lake School District teacher Sandy Zimmer- man has posted her audi- tion video for competing in the popular TV show "American Ninja War- rior" online, and needs people to view it and like it to help her chances of making an appearance.
