CONNECT with your Community and SERVE!
It's a Matter of the Heart
Volunteers can change our community, making it a better place for all of us to live. There are a number of people that need your help. Take the time to serve the homeless, play music for the elderly, bring alive the history of this community in a museum, walk a homeless dog, advocate for a child, or assist in disasters. The opportunities are endless. Volunteering not only reaches out and serves but it also brings out the very best in not only the recipient but also the volunteer. The following might just happen if you volunteer:
Meet new and interesting people and develop new friendships
• Share your talents and abilities
• Assist in the shaping of your community
• Learn something new and improve your skills
• Be a better leader and follower
• Have fun
• Develop a sense of purpose and direction
• Advance your career
• Live Longer (you might!)
As a volunteer you will meet new challenges, solve problems, share a new perspective and most of all touch a life while making a real difference in the community.
