Benefits of Volunteering

Volunteering is the heart of our community. Our public and not-for-profit organizations live by it.

Our volunteering senior citizens receive the benefits of an altruistic feeling, a sense of accomplishment, improved physical and cognitive functioning, and feelings of social support.

Our young people, who often start volunteering through the example of adults, learn that service can benefit our community and teach them useful career and life-skills.

Volunteering is all about learning, leadership and service for ourselves and our community.
