Last Tuesday, at the first school drop-off after a four-day weekend, I joined an impromptu meeting pulled together by a mom of sixth grade twins. Help was needed to plan and execute a school party on Friday afternoon to raise money for the sixth grade class trip. Because I am unemployed, I happily volunteered Pete to help set up the bar. And I agreed to donate some cakes. Even with such a short lead time, the party went well and money was raised.
