Volunteer and get some editing services for free

Here's an editor offering some editing help in exchange for you volunteering somewhere. Pretty nice offer. Mega agent Janet Reid recommends Ben's services.

Seems a terrific offer, but I'm wondering where an 81-year old who doesn't drive, lives two miles from the nearest school, even farther from a hospital, can volunteer.
Read samples of my Martian series (by Dorothy Piper) and two romances (by Joni Havel) on Smashwords.
Hard copies of all are on Amazon.

There are things you can do from home - contact the school/hospital for upcoming events that they might need flyers folded/put in envelopes/cookies baked/phone calls made/etc. From my small town experience, if someone offered to help like that, they'd find someone to drive a couple miles to drop off and pick up the materials (may even be one of your neighbors). :)

That is very nice of the editor to make that offer.
