Just another thought. You don't have to use your services to volunteer. You can volunteer as your business but do something else other than weld & still get your name out there. Ever see the roadside signs that say "this section of road kept litter free by xxxxxxxx company"? Many organizations hold fundraisers & list the company names that send volunteers who just help where ever is needed.
I don't think many places would want someone welding on something unless they are fully licensed & insured.MM250

Exceptional points of view. The road side litter signs is genius. I can't remember how much is required to be kept up, I don't know the requirements yet. LOL
But again I am misleading with what I write.
My thoughts of the Sheriffs Office would be directed to the employees that work there. This may be bass akwards to what I should be thinking.
However the free work would go to them as individuals. I'm thinking small jobs that can be hand carried through the door and put on the table or trailer, lawn mower, simple things.
I wasn't thinking about going to the LEC and working on the property there.
My intent was to help out with what ever repairs or projects the individual's may need that work for places like that.
Believe me I understand how Volunteers can be asked to go above and beyond what a volunteer should. I was in the Rescue Squad for a number of years. All volunteer. Then the county admin would ask the volunteers to volunteer for work that the county needed done that had nothing to do with Rescue.
Rescue helped people in need, vehicle wrecks mostly, medic assistance, water recovery and first responding. But climbing a fire tower and changing antennas etc. was some added BS I didn't think to highly of.
Maybe this is why I am leaning more to helping those who work there and not the establishment itself. I would but those jobs probably would require more out of pocket expense than I could keep up with.
Per every 100 employees, how many would actually need welding? Maybe 10 if that? But all 100 would know your name and know your asking to give them something.
If you went to the LEC to fix a railing I doubt many would even know who you were or how it came about unless you could stay with it for a long time, but the abuse would surly come.
