I have called or emailed two different organizations in an attempt to get set up in some volunteer work and never heard back from either. One was a hospice society and one a "soup kitchen". Is this normal? Is there another route one would suggest? Do I just assume they have so much help they don't get back to people and move on? Suggestions anyone? I just want to give back some of my time and would prefer to do a hospice (palliative) type atmosphere as I see what the volunteers in these homes do while my poppy stays in one back east.
