Our lives can be so busy that it can be hard to find time to volunteer. However, the benefits of volunteering can be enormous.
Our volunteers offer vital help to people in need, in our community, but the benefits can be even greater for the volunteer.
Giving to others can also help protect your mental and physical health. It can reduce stress, combat depression, keep you mentally stimulated, and provide a sense of purpose. While it’s true that the more you volunteer, the more benefits you’ll experience, volunteering doesn’t have to involve a long-term commitment or take a huge amount of time out of your busy day.
Giving in even simple ways can help those in need and improve your health and happiness.
Volunteering gives you the opportunity to connect to your community and make it a better place.
Even helping out with the smallest tasks can make a real difference to the lives of people in need. Sometimes people just need people…someone to see and hear them. And volunteering is a two-way street: Helping others makes us feel good about ourselves!
