Volunteering Is Rewarding

“Volunteers do not necessarily have the time; they just have the heart.”-Elizabeth Andrew

Volunteering is often the glue that holds a community together. It allows you to connect to your community and make it a better place. However, volunteering is a two-way street, and equally benefits the volunteer as well as society. Dedicating your time as a volunteer helps you make new friends, expand your network, and boost your social skills. For society, your contribution brings out some positive change. Volunteering is important for both, the individual as well as the society.
