Volunteer in Your Community

We have started a new category of posts on the Weddings Unveiled blog labeled Faith, Hope & Love. Whenever you visit Completely Unveiled, you can search this topic, where you'll find posts about events supporting charities, ways you can contribute, opportunities to volunteer and more. It is our sincerest hope that our readers will find inspiration in these posts to help others and share love. We have faith that even the smallest acts of kindness and love can make a difference in our world and in the lives of others.

With faith, hope and love,
Weddings Unveiled


My piece of bread only belongs to me when I know that everyone else has a share, and that no one starves while I eat. ~ Leo Tolstoy

There are countless people in need living in communities and cities throughout our country who struggle to find their next meal or live without the basic necessities that most of us take for granted every day. You can help and get involved in your community by volunteering or donating to a local shelter or soup kitchen. Gather a group of friends, family or your wedding party and spend an afternoon or a day volunteering. Your time, your love and the kindness you share will make a difference in the world! Not only will your good works help those less fortunate, but your actions will also inspire others to help, creating an endless chain of good.

Our Weddings Unveiled team has put together this small list of shelters and soup kitchens in the Southern states surrrounding our homes. We know that there are so many more out there and we hope that you will choose to get involved with one of the organizations we have listed or a local organization in your community. Please feel free to add to our list by commenting to let others know of additional shelters, soup kitchens and organizations in your local area where our readers can volunteer or contribute. We can work together to help our neighbors in need!
