A community can only be as healthy, vibrant and active as its members are willing to make it. Making it so involves time, energy, effort and commitment – from every single member. We’ve all heard much during the past year about the “loss of community values” and “family values”. Those values are ingrained in each of us through our individual and collective service to our neighbors, neighborhoods, and communities. As adults and parents, we model those behaviors and activities for our youth in an attempt to pass on those values to the next generation.
Volunteerism significantly improves the quality of life for ourselves and future generations. The benefits of volunteering can be personal health, skill building, and sense of community.
We want to get everyone volunteering.
