Volunteer Benefits
 

Volunteering derives a sense of personal satisfaction and accomplishment which comes from knowing that the service you provide to your community has a favorable impact.  

Recent studies have concluded that volunteering has considerable health benefits. It is reported that individuals who volunteer have improved physical and mental health. Reports indicate that volunteers have greater longevity, higher functional ability, lower rates of depression and less incidence of heart disease. Studies found that individuals who volunteer 2 hours per week enjoy these significant health benefits. 

In addition to  the health benefits, you will also receive travel reimbursement to and from your volunteer site, supplemental personal and auto liability insurance in excess of your coverage. 

You will also receive our quarterly newsletter “Volunteer Reporter” wherein we keep you alert to new volunteer opportunities, events and general information.
