LLC Give Back: How to Volunteer and get involved with PADS

LLC Gives Back: Local. Family. Fun. It isn’t just the mission. It’s Little Lake County’s vision. What can we do to help our local families? Every month LLC explores a local nonprofit organization, introduces them to our readers, and provides examples of ways to make a positive impact in our community.

PADS is our second quarter charity partner as part of our Little Lake County Gives Back program,  a community outreach effort to connect not-for-profit organizations with our readers. For more information on the program, please contact Melissa at [email protected].

Parent/Child Volunteer Opportunities in Lake County

PADS is a wonderful local organization that your family can help together. I’m always looking for philanthropic adventures in Lake County that allow children to help.

If you’re looking for an impactful way to contribute to society, look no further.  Working together we can strengthen our Lake County community by supporting PADS.

PADS is very organized and they even have an Amazon wish list, so if you don’t have time to run errands or volunteer, you can just click to help!

Your family can help PADS Lake County through volunteering at a shelter, monetary donations, organizing an in-kind drive and donations of requested items.  You can help at a shelter site, provide meals or even just save up the unopened shampoo from your hotel room.  You can even do something simple as laundry or packing a lunch.
