April is volunteer appreciation month. Did you know that non-profits depend on volunteers and are grateful for their support? Over the years I have volunteered my time in many different ways and with several different organizations. It’s a great feeling. Not only am I helping others, it helps me keep things in perspective. I realize how much I have and how lucky I am. And I have learned so much and met great people along the way.
I believe that everyone should make time to volunteer. It is so rewarding. Not sure who needs your help? Check out Volunteer Match. They can match you to organizations that need your talents and skills. Make it a family activity. When my kids were growing up they participated with me at the Humane Society and WB Foodshelf events among other things. I felt it was important to encourage them to do for others.
Are you already a volunteer? Way to go! I would love to hear who you support and why.
