What so many others have discovered is that volunteering is a two-way street. Not only do you benefit those you are serving, but you gain significant benefits yourself.

Benefits of Volunteering

Fun & fulfillment – volunteering helps you focus on others and not just yourself. In addition to creating a sense of fulfillment in helping others, you may find enjoyment that is different from your normal employment.

Community – you will be contributing to the local community. Just as importantly, you may find some social connections with the people you volunteer with, or the people you serve.
