Why Volunteer?

Besides meeting new people, learning new skills, and surrouding yourself with like-minded people of the community, volunteering is a rewarding and fulfilling experience for people of all ages.

Get the Family Involved

Volunteering is a fantastic family bonding activity which helps children grow with a strong sense of community, a raised self-esteem, and an overall increased quality of life.

"The Health Benefits of Volunteering: A Review of Recent Research has found a significant connection between volunteering and good health. The report shows that volunteers have greater longevity, higher functional ability, lower rates of depression, and less incidence of heart disease."

Don't just get your children involved; ask your spouse and even your siblings or parents to help out! Research suggests that volunteering is particularly beneficial to the health of older adults.

  • An analysis of longitudinal data found that individuals over 70 who volunteered approximately 100 hours per year had less of a decline in self-reported health and functioning levels, experienced lower levels of depression, and had more longevity.
