Volunteering has more rewards than you can imagine. Organizations rely on support from caring, compassionate volunteers to enhance their programs to the highest levels. Sometimes just two extra hands can have significant impact. The recipients of volunteer services welcome meeting new faces and sharing experiences. Whether it’s reading to a child, mentoring a young adult, spending time with the elderly or helping out at a food pantry/kitchen we all can touch a life.
As a volunteer your benefits are endless. Share your passions for a particular cause, learn a new skill, develop interests in areas outside your normal purview and networking with new social circles will bring new opportunities and self reward.
It doesn’t take much to volunteer beyond a desire to help and a little time. Give an hour, a day or a week, whatever you can and make a difference. When you reach out a hand to one, you influence the conditions of all. This is how we all can “Live United”.
