Lakewood Youth Sports volunteer coaches needed Volunteer coaches are needed for baseball, softball and T-ball teams for the summer season at all Lakewood parks. Although moms and dads of players make great coaches, it’s not necessary to have a child playing to enjoy the volunteer experience. No coaching experience is necessary. [FULL STORY]


‘Meals on Wheels’ needs volunteers For the past 37 years, Lakewood Meals on Wheels has made it possible for Lakewood residents who can no longer cook for themselves to remain in the comfort of their home and enjoy a hot, after­noon meal and a sack dinner for the evening.
Lakewood Meals on Wheels is always looking for volunteers. Volunteers range in age from teens to seniors, and they help with everything from driving and delivering meals to making sandwiches and packaging the meals. You don’t have to drive to help out. Volun­teers are needed for as little as two hours for one day a week between Monday and Friday, or on a substitute basis. [FULL STORY]

Before going into real estate in 2001, I worked in the medical field. Found it very rewarding helping others and decided to make a switch and help those, who want to achieve the "American Dream". As a homeowner, I know the importance of home ownership and nothing gives me more pleasure than to place those keys into the hands of a new homeowner. I look forward to helping you, with all your real estate needs.
