Why do we do it?


In this day and age of having too much to do in too little time, what inspires a person to devote time? For some volunteers, getting involved in your community presents an opportunity to acquire new skills and build valuable business connections. For others, it’s a chance to relax and socialize, while doing something fun, outside the realm of the routine. But for most, it’s about making a mark on the world. Volunteerism is one of those fascinating movements that impacts the quality of life of those you give to. Most importantly, those who give feel empowered and appreciated. It also may contribute to positive mental health as well, adding depth and meaning to life.
