It is hard to imagine where our community would be today if it wasn’t for the help of our altruistic individuals. Volunteers perform a variety of tasks for charities. For example, a volunteer might stuff envelopes, feed animals, tutor children, build houses, help to grow food in some village, counsel those in crisis, sell tickets or just answer the phone. At the highest levels, volunteers serve on the board of directors and are charged with the crucial task of governing the organization.
We match different projects and programs with volunteers who are passionate about specific cases, and who can help when and where we need them. Because volunteers are often donors as well, we make it easy for them to contribute their time and money.
We believe that this is the greatest way how good people and good causes get connected.
Volunteering offers vital help to people in need, worthwhile causes, and the community, but the benefits can be even greater for you, the volunteer. Volunteering and helping others can help you reduce stress, combat depression, keep you mentally stimulated, and provide a sense of purpose. While it’s true that the more you volunteer, the more benefits you’ll experience, volunteering doesn’t have to involve a long-term commitment or take a huge amount of time out of your busy day. Giving in even simple ways can help others those in need and improve your health and happiness.
