Everyone has a talent (apparent or hidden) which will benefit a group, the town, and YOU! Read about the organizations, attend a meeting, and find your passion!  Volunteering builds community and increases socializing which in turn creates new friendships and bonds while reducing loneliness, Volunteer experiences improve school and college capabilities and provides better job prospects. Additionally, volunteering improves self-esteem while reducing depressions, PTSD, anxiety and other symptoms of mental health.
