    Helping in an animal rescue centre.
    There is always work that needs doing and even a day a week is better than none.
    You do need to be an animal lover, and ensure 'best practice' is being carried out at all time.

    Water table at a 5K or other race.
    City cleanup.
    Serving a meal at a homeless shelter. (This happens 365 days, not just Thanksgiving.)
    Reading to a pre-K or Kindergarten class.

    I've volunteered to cook at the local Ronald McDonald house a few times. It's fun (I like to cook) and rewarding, and you can spend an entire day or even just a single meal working there.

    Outplanting endangered species. Physically hard work, but very satisfying.

    Thanks for your service. I stayed in one for best part of a month a few years ago.

    - Marathon/Charity Walks
    - Soup Kitchens, Food Banks
    - Park and Community Clean Ups
    - Red Cross (have a lot if you register)
    - Administering Vaccines at Community Vaccine Clinics
    - Migrant worker health clinics
    - Narcan Administration Community Training (heroin/opioid overdose antitode)

    While some of these utilize specific education/training/certification they also often require non-such educated people to function and help operate other aspects of the service event.
