Why Volunteering Is Good for Your Health and Your Career

Helping sort canned goods at a local food pantry or building a wheelchair ramp for a house can leave you with a sense of accomplishment, but volunteering actually has many other long-term benefits, including better overall health and improved teamwork skills.

In fact, about a quarter of people who have volunteered in the past year say that volunteering helped them manage a chronic illness, while almost 50% of people new to volunteering say that volunteering helped with their career.

      Hi Stephenie!
      Thanks for your question. There are countless ways to volunteer in your community. In fact, if you’d like to join Express for Brand It Blue Day this weekend, you can visit this site to find out if your local Express office is participating. Then, contact them to find out how you can be involved. Hope that helps get you started!

      You can always contact your chamber of commerce and ask if they have any volunteer organizations in town. If they do contact them, usually they will find a place to volunteer once a month.
      Places like Salvation Army, Goodwill, local food banks, Habitat for Humanity always need volunteers!
