Volunteering is contribution of time, effort and talent to a need, cause or mission without financial gain. Volunteering is all about you being able to contribute some of your own time and skills to help people in our communities.
Volunteering is an integral part of supporting the community and is a great way to meet new people, especially if you are new to an area. Volunteering strengthens your ties to the community and broadens your support network.
