The Benefits of Volunteerism

Here's a link to a New York Times story on volunteers. We are fortunate to know volunteers of all kinds. From the high school National Honor Society volunteers to Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts, corporations, and civic groups, if HSP didn't have our volunteers, we really wouldn't be here. They run food, toy, and school supplies drives; deliver food to the seniors in our program; staff our Feed the Kids distribution days; wrap presents; sort food; stock books and contribute in so many ways that it's hard to list them all. The lessons learned might not be apparent right away, but we happen to think the greater good will utimately shine in the hearts of all who extend themselves.
