Why Volunteer?

Volunteering to help others is a great way to stay active and vital in your community.  Each hour you volunteer is valued at $24.69. Eight (8) hours per week can save a not-for profit $197.52.  Your generous gift of time and talent can keep an organization up and running.  

 

Here are 3 simple ways to volunteer:

1. Make the small things count:  Sometimes simply going and picking up recycling can make a huge difference to a non-profit organization.
2. Filling the gaps: Local not-for-profits need individuals to help fill in when their regular employees/volunteers cannot be there.  Being an emergency call is a wonderful help.
3. Comfort and Support: Being a shoulder for someone to cry on or the person to give a hug can make a big difference in a lot of people’s lives.
