WHY VOLUNTEER? People volunteer for many reasons, but one of the most well-known benefits of volunteering is the impact it has on the community. By giving of themselves volunteers improve the quality of life for all of those around them. Volunteer work is both important and necessary, often serving as the glue that holds a community together. However volunteering is not only beneficial to others, but it also provides the volunteer with the reward of giving of him or herself.
