WHY BECOME A VOLUNTEER?
Volunteering not only helps others, but it also helps you, the volunteer. We, as humans, are designed to be social. As we age, many of us find ourselves alone more often, as friends and family pass on or move away. Human connections help us thrive. Volunteering gives you purpose and helps those in need. It’s a win/win! Being a volunteer is a very rewarding experience.
