Why do you think people should volunteer? Because it would make the world a better place. I think everyone should volunteer because everybody has something to offer. Volunteers are an essential part that aren’t mentioned enough, the volunteers do so much behind the scenes. Whether it’s volunteering at their church, or whether it’s volunteering at a food bank, or whether it’s volunteering during disasters around the country. I do for my neighbors what I want other people to do for me. When we need something, she’s always right there for us. She’s like part of our family. It makes me feel like I’m not alone, and I have people to call to. There are so many things and so many groups that could use volunteer assistant to make them more effective. It helps out tremendously with the students, as far as building that relationship and building that academic partnership. Everyone couple of weeks, I go for a walk with my 5-gallon bucket and pick up trash along the route and put it in the dumpsters, put in the trash, get rid of it and make the road look better. When you help somebody without any payback, you help the world around you and not just yourself. You don’t have to do it, but you’re choosing to do and I think that makes a difference.
