Here at Fairway, we regularly give our time to support local charities and our communities. We do it all, from volunteer firefighters, coaching children, participating in major events like the Canadian Cancer Societies Relay for Life, and practically everything in between.
Here are our top 5 reasons why we think everyone should volunteer:
1. You’re giving back to the community.
When you volunteer you are helping those who really need it. You are helping strengthen your community. Whether you are helping tutor children, supporting families in eldercare, or cleaning up the local beach, your community reaps the benefits.
2. You’re helping make a difference.
There is no satisfaction like knowing you are making a difference in someone’s life. Even the small things can make a huge difference.
3. It gives you self-confidence and a sense of accomplishment
Knowing at the end of the day that you helped someone smile, be it a child or an adult in need, not only makes them feel better but it makes you feel better too.
4. It connects you with others
Volunteering allows you to meet new people, connect with your community, and make new friends that you otherwise may not have had the opportunity to meet.
5. It can help advance your career
Let’s face it, volunteering looks great on resumes, and college applications.
We encourage everyone to get out in their communities. Even the smallest amount of time can help make our communities even better!
