Volunteers play a valuable role in our ability to meet the needs of seniors and individuals living with disabilities in our community. Volunteering offers vital help to people in need, worthwhile causes, and our local communities, but the benefits can be even greater for you, the volunteer. Volunteering and helping others can 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 your time in even simple ways can help those in need and improve your health and happiness.
