April is National Volunteer Month, a time where we can celebrate what all our volunteers are doing around the world, and a time to increase awareness for charities and causes that are dear to us. This month SS Financial Group applauds all of you who are actively investing your time and efforts into selflessly improving the lives of others. Thank you so much for your commitment to making our world a better place!
Volunteering provides countless benefits for those in need, as well as for those of us rolling up our sleeves. Data suggests that volunteering can reduce stress and increase optimism, which can thereby improve your overall health. While "feeling good" about ourselves is a welcome benefit, ultimately the spirit of volunteerism is focused on bringing together people within a community for a community.
If you'd like to get involved but aren't sure where to start, here are some great ideas that can help you align your hobbies with potential volunteer efforts. I would love to hear how you're making a difference in your community - feel free to let me know by sending me an email at email@example.com!
