Benefits of volunteering
There are numerous benefits of community service and advantages of volunteering. Every person is attracted to volunteering for a different reason based on their personal feelings. Some rewards of volunteering may include giving you: The feeling of altruism and satisfaction you get helping others in need. The sense of well-being of giving back to a worthy organization or cause. The sense of belonging and connection when you donate time to an organization close to your heart. The satisfaction of being part of a professional organization that values your time, talent and expertise.
How volunteering helps
Many volunteers bring expertise or experience to the organization that is free—pro bono legal or accounting services, for instance.Other volunteers provide contact with parts of the community that an organization generally doesn’t interact with (volunteers will talk about your organization with their friends and colleagues—the good and the bad), and chief among them would be the volunteer who coordinates volunteers! For each volunteer there is the reward of helping others, of serving the cause. When properly directed, volunteers are a treasured asset, real gems in delivering services to those in need.
How to volunteer
Donating your time or money gives yourself a feeling of satisfaction. Another benefit of donating to a nonprofit organization is that it provides you with a good feeling. You will feel better about yourself after helping to support any non-profit organization, because you will know that you have done something that may save lives or help others who are less fortunate.
