Volunteering has many rewards. It benefits both the recipient and you. If you are curious about how volunteering can benefit you, read the article 18 Reasons to Volunteer Your Time at http://www.everydaygiving.com/volunteer.htm.
This month I was reminded of how easy it is to locate a great volunteering opportunity and how valuable volunteering can be.
I recently set a goal to get more hands-on experience with public relations and working with the local media. Supporting a charity to gain this experience not only meets my need for the experience, but also helps an important cause at the same time.
How easy was my search? I went to the volunteer matching section of my local United Way website, searched on my zip code and the search term “PR.” I selected one of the charities I strongly believe in and contacted them.
I am now a volunteer supporting Hope House in Fredericksburg, Virginia. They have been serving homeless women and their children in our area since 1987. I am honored to be a part of their team. I already have been assigned responsibilities that will help increase awareness for the organization. You can learn about Hope House at http://www.hopehouseva.org.
Do you avoid volunteering your time because you don’t know how to find a volunteer opportunity? It is easy. I have written a Special Report called How To Discover Your Ideal Volunteer Opportunity to help you out.
