By volunteering, you are generously rewarded with the satisfaction of knowing you have contributed to something bigger yourself; you become an active, contributing participant of the community. Develop skills, gain work experience, give back to the community and world you live in, and help and meet unique, intelligent, dedicated individuals. Volunteering is also a way of saying thank you. It’s a way of recognizing the countless others who, in big ways and small, have made life richer and better through donations of time and effort.

What matters is that you find something meaningful to you; something that allows you to feel good about yourself while giving back to a community. Each organization and event is critically important in its own way, whether you donate your time or money. Time is more valuable than money, so if you don’t have time to volunteer, you surely have some amount of disposable income to help. $20 can go a long way. Do some good.
