International Volunteer Day
Each year, Dec. 5 is designated as International Volunteer Day. Research shows that volunteering has many benefits to the individuals who give their time to help others: volunteers have been found to have lower rates of depression, lower mortality rates, and greater functional ability. Plus, it can be a way to develop new skills and build on experience.
