The Importance of Volunteering

Volunteer work provides an organization with a free resource to help it meet its mission or goals, which often include filling the gap between an individual or community’s resources and those provided by the government. In many cases, volunteers are crucial to help maintain life, as when meals are delivered to home-bound people. Sometimes volunteer work, such as renovating a playground, benefits the broader community. While volunteer work is important for the individuals and communities served, it also benefits the volunteer.
