Volunteering, the new work?

Michelle V. Agins/The New York Times
Eryka Teisch is job-hunting but volunteering 20 hours a week.

This is the kitchen I volunteer in every week at God's Love We Deliver.
The Times has an article in today's paper talking about the increase in volunteering. It made me feel bad I don't do more. It's going on 10 months now and I have to say being unemployed is the hardest thing I've ever experienced. This is why places like God's Love are so important now, they help people like me focus and feel like we are doing something worthwhile at the same time giving you a reason to leave the house.
