Nonprofit organizations depend on monetary donations to keep their operations running and support the communities they serve. Many people, however, want to do more than write a check to local organizations they support, so they become volunteers.
When people choose to donate their time, energy and skills to support a community organization, the impact can be immeasurable. Plus, volunteering allows people to be actively involved in their community without feeling the budget crunch at home. Even a few hours each month can help a neighborhood, a family in need, or an organization attain its goals and make a positive, meaningful impact in the community
People don’t always realize what they gain personally when they volunteer, however. In addition to feeling a sense of community and accomplishment, people can also improve their networking skills, connections and professional development as they help others.
Improving leadership, networking and job skills is important in any field, and doing so through community involvement is a rewarding way to give back. Volunteering provides the best of both worlds – supporting your local community while developing professional skills that may help you in the future.” Door County is blessed with The Volunteer center to assist you in directing your volunteer efforts.
