I’ve enjoyed volunteer opportunities all my life, starting with my 200 hours as a Candy Striper at the Virginia Mason Hospital in the early ’70s. It was fun (great outfit!) and educational (sent me into law instead of nursing). Recently I was invited to provide legal services to seniors at the Ballard Senior Center monthly clinic and I’m so happy to have this opportunity.
Some of the documented benefits of volunteering include:
- Decrease your risk of depression.
- Enjoy a sense of purpose and fulfillment—and increase your self-confidence while you’re at it!
- Stay physically and mentally active.
- Reduce stress levels.
I’m guessing you all have many experiences with volunteer work too. I’d love to hear from you!
