Volunteering Creates Community!

Did you know the United States was founded on volunteerism?

According to the VolunteerMatch.org blog post, the original American colonists banded together to help each other plant and harvest crops, build houses, and create a new government.  In 1736,  Benjamin Franklin created and developed the first volunteer firehouse.

Since then, volunteers have played a pivotal role accomplishing the impossible in most historical events: The Great Awakening, The Civil War, The Great Depression, and World War II.

Volunteering creates community! Volunteers shape history by committing their time and efforts to a course of action benefiting others. Whether your retired or still in the work force, volunteerism creates solutions most communities don’t have the resources to solve.

Anyone can volunteer. Your volunteerism benefits children, retirees, nonprofits, and community service organizations providing crucial assistance to the general public. In Green Valley, examples of these organizations are the Green Valley-Sahuarita Community Food Bank and Valley Assistance Services.

Volunteering allows one to…

  • Share their knowledge with younger generations
  • Make new friends
  • Discover hidden talents
  • Build new skill sets
  • Improve life for others
  • Develop self-confidence
  • Find sense of purpose
  • Creates smiles
