Volunteering is the ultimate exercise in democracy. You vote in elections once a year, but when you volunteer, you vote every day about the kind of community you want to live in.
No person was ever honored for what he received. Honor is given by what he gave.
Treat people as if they were what they out to be, and help them become what they are capable of being.
Volunteering brings you closer to home and community.
It’s easy to make a buck. It’s a lot tougher to make a difference.
Too often we under-estimate the power of touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.
Everyone can be great, because everyone can serve.
Volunteerism is being selfless and serving the community in a way that we wouldn’t naturally do. We are more inclined to be selfish, but the organizations at the Volunteer Fair give us an opportunity to give back.
Volunteering means reaching out to the community, helping others because you have a desire to help others.
To the world you may be one person, but to one person you may be the world.
