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.

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.
