What would the world do without volunteers? Nowhere is that more true than in Los Altos and Los Altos Hills, which seems to run on volunteers in order to offer the wealth of activities and resources we have.
Volunteering is also the bedrock of Patch's mission. Patch's "Give 5" program gives employees five days a year to volunteer in community organizations.
In Los Altos or Los Altos Hills, it's not a question of whether there is a place to volunteer, it's a question of how to choose among many places.
Patch editors have two more "Give 5" days left in the year: Sept. 15 and Nov 17.
So, I think readers should tell me.

I've volunteered at , pulling weeds and thinning beets from the organic farm. It's the volunteerism that makes community here.
What next? ? 4-H Riding for the Handicapped? The Pet Parade preparation? The Holiday Parade, or ? There are a myriad of organizations, so speak up for yours.
