Volunteers Benefit In Many Ways
You may not think you are a volunteer but perhaps you don’t realize that each and everything you do for someone else is volunteering, whether it be car pooling to work, car pooling kids to school, helping a neighbor with yard work, or visiting an elderly person; you are helping someone else!

Are you a caregiver? That counts too! Sometimes the feeling you get when you "give back" is worth making and taking the time to do that one thing, each month, each week or even each day. Your efforts can help brighten the life of someone around you. Make that effort, you'll be glad you did. :)
