Volunteerism

  1. 1. “Volunteers do not necessarily have the time; they just have the heart.” -Elizabeth Andrew
  2. 2. Importance of Volunteer hours *Allows kids to get involved in their community and do something for others without getting something in return. *Sometimes we come across people who spend their free time volunteering in different organizations and charitable institutions. Sometimes too, we learn of people who volunteer in neighborhood drives; whether its a clean-up drive; a fund raising for the community or even spending a few hours helping neighbors take care of their overwhelming chores. *The possibilities of volunteering are endless. But really, Why Is Volunteering Important? Why do people do it; and some dont? What can we get out of volunteering our time, effort and sometimes even our resources?
