Volunteering is Living a Life of Relevance

03 Jul

We are continuously amazed by the volunteer stories of our local leaders, like MP Frank Valeriote. See a snapshot from his interview in C.ommunity here. Afterwards, if you’re feeling inspired and ready to take action, we’ve got you covered. Five new volunteer opportunities await you below. Happy volunteering!

“Volunteerism in its essence is living a life of relevance, becoming a more caring person humbled by those you help. Volunteering benefits our entire community, and upholds a covenant of service before self. The ability of people to work willingly together for the betterment of their community and themselves is truly a valuable resource.” – Frank Valeriote, MP
