The Importance and Benefits of Volunteering

Volunteering is multi-faceted in its importance to our society.  It enriches our society, brings us together as a community, and helps keep businesses and other organizations afloat. Volunteers are integral to our society. However, there’s much more to being a volunteer than giving back. You can get so much out of volunteering. Read ahead to learn more about how!

Why More People Should Get Involved

Not only is volunteering important because it helps to better your community, it also helps to better you as an individual. Volunteering is a free way to feel good about yourself. The best part is that you get to share that positivity to those you’re volunteering with.

This feel good feeling is actually shown to decrease your risk of depression because it keeps you active and helps you make new, fulfilling connections. Additionally, it’s a good way to reduce stress that may come from work or your relationships.

How You Can Get Involved

One reason people hesitate to get involved in volunteer work is that they don’t know where to start. Lucky for those in the Mansfield area, though, you have a great volunteer opportunity just a short drive from you.

As one of the top twenty-five nursing facilities in America according to U.S. News & World Report, the Hannah B.G. Shaw Home offers top-notch at-home style living accommodations as well as compassionate and devoted caregiving which gives this facility its homey feeling.

Volunteers at the Shaw Home not only have the opportunity to grow individually alongside these dedicated staff members. More importantly, they’re helping to enrich the lives of the residents through fun, interactive daily activities.
