APRIL IS NATIONAL VOLUNTEER MONTH — LOOKING FOR A WAY TO HELP?

Did you know that volunteering is good for your body and mind? In addition, as a volunteer, you are able to make an incredible positive impact within your community! April is National Volunteer Month, so what are you waiting for? Volunteering not only connects you to others while increasing self-confidence, combating depression, and helping you to stay physically healthy, but studies have found that older adults who volunteer have a lower mortality rate than those who do not.
