You Only Have to Care

Volunteering not only provides the opportunity to get involved in a cause that you are passionate about, but it also provides the possibility to look beyond our own circumstances and appreciate what others are experiencing.  Enjoying yourself while volunteering is one of the rewards you will receive while working towards your goal of helping others.  Our volunteers get to experience the benefit of seeing for themselves just how vitally important their contribution is in the community and in the lives of those who need them.  It is so exciting to realize how performing even the smallest acts of kindness can make such a huge impact.  Funny thing is, when volunteering for Friends, often the difference that you will make in another person’s life will make an even bigger difference in yours.  It has been said that you don’t have to be brilliant, rich, beautiful, or even perfect to make a difference in someone’s life; and that is so true.  You only have to care.
