The Power of Volunteering

 As the seasons are changing, the days are getting colder, the holidays are approaching, and we need to step back and look at those that are in need during these times. I have had the pleasure of volunteering at Des Moines Homeless Shelters and Services in the past and during the holidays. Being a volunteer is one of the most fulfilling experiences I have had and seeing the look on the faces I have helped is priceless.

Whether it is going to a nursing home and spending some time with the elderly, visiting children at the Children’s Hospital, working at the soup kitchen, or even just donating items to a shelter can help. Sharing your time and talents as a volunteer can bring happiness to those around you and to your own soul.

Some places to volunteer in Des Moines, Iowa are:

Central Iowa Shelter & Services
Amy Olson, VISTA Program & Volunteer Coordinator

Youth Emergency Services and Shelter
Jana Daisy, Community Activities Manager

Hope Ministries

Hawthorn Hill

As Mother Teresa states, “Let us touch the dying, the poor, the lonely, and the unwanted according to the graces we have received and let us not be ashamed or slow to do the humble work.”

TODAY At Dino’s Storage

Today is a day we can make a difference.
Today is not just about doing our job but how we do it.
Today is important and how we live it.


At Dino’s Storage we have THREE CORE VALUES
1. Have a servant heart with discernment.
2. Have a burning desire to be the best possible version of ourselves.
3. Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouth.

Attitude and actions are important. Sometimes we are hit with negatives and forget the positives. Mother Teresa gave us a message about this:

“People are often unreasonable and self-centered. Forgive them anyway.
If you are kind, people may accuse you of ulterior motives. Be kind anyway.
If you are honest, people may cheat you. Be honest anyway.
If you find happiness, people may be jealous. Be happy anyway.
The good you do today may be forgotten tomorrow. Do good anyway.
Give the world the best you have and it may never be enough. Give your best anyway.
For you see, in the end, it is between you and God. It was never between you and them.

We at Dino’s Storage want to make this a good day for you.
