Were getting ready for week 3 of August of 12 Months of Wellness: volunteering!
This week for our 12 Months of Wellness journey, we had fun in our communities! Now, we’re getting ready for next week—volunteering!
There are so many reasons why we should volunteer: it helps build our resumes and portfolios, we can make a difference in our communities and support a cause we believe in, we can make friends, and it’s even good for our health.
