Volunteering is a great way to give back to the community at large, but it is also a fabulous way to help the individuals in our community that need a helping hand. If you are older, it is also an excellent way for you to stay physically active and mentally sharp.

Studies have shown that the benefits of volunteering go far beyond the individual actions. For seniors, the benefits include increased physical stamina, increased alertness, and increased happiness. All of these combine to make sure your golden years are bright, cheery, and productive years that you will cherish and remember.

Volunteering is also a terrific way to stay connected to the fast-paced world around you, and to share the world of your youth with younger generations. To state the obvious, it’s a fabulous way to find someone who can help you program your cell phone while you are teaching them to bake a cake.

We would love for you to become a part of our volunteer family. The Love Fund has many events scheduled throughout the year, and we encourage you to come and join us to learn how you can become a volunteer yourself.
