Volunteering is good for your family.

When you volunteer, you socialize and network. You have the opportunity to meet people from all different walks of life. You never know when you’ll meet someone who has resources and knowledge that your family can benefit from.

Good Advice: Take your family along when you volunteer so they can reap the personal health benefits, too.



Volunteering benefits people in need.

There are people in your community who need a little boost to keep them afloat so that they can survive and thrive. When you volunteer, you help to fill gaps for people in need. Nonprofit organizations rely on volunteers to support outreach programs. When you volunteer, you ensure that nonprofit organizations can reach more people with their mission.



Volunteering impacts your community.

When you volunteer, you help lift people up out of poverty. People are 33% more likely to give back to a cause that has touched their life in some way. Someone who received help in a time of need finds a way to pay it forward and help others, too. This cycle leads to a community of people that is constantly growing, improving, and thriving.
