Cinco de Mayo is a celebratory holiday, but it’s also getting close to summer. If you haven’t started thinking about summer volunteering, now is the time to plan. Volunteering is an essential part of improving our community. On the fence about donating your time as a volunteer? Here are five reasons to start volunteering today:
It’s good for you—Not only does volunteering reduce stress, it also promotes optimistic emotions and strengthens the immune system. You’ll also discover hidden talents, and volunteering encourages healthy self-esteem.
Strengthen the community—Volunteering impacts every part of the community. Volunteers support families, improve schools, support youth programs and keeps the community clean.
Gain professional experience—Test the waters of a particular career path by volunteering. If you’re interested in being a teacher, then try youth mentoring. This is especially useful for college students who need to choose a path of study.
Meet new people—Volunteering brings people together and promotes camaraderie. You’re more likely to meet and befriend people from unique and diverse backgrounds; all who are working towards a united goal.
Make a difference—Every time you volunteer, you’re helping the world become a better place. No matter which nonprofit organization you volunteer for, every volunteering effort counts in helping your community.

The hospice home is an eight bed facility that serves hospice patients 24/7. Help for Health also serve hospice patients in their own homes. We are Medicaid and Medicare certified and accept most private insurances. No one is denied services due to inability to pay.
