Volunteering your time and talents to a non-profit organization brings many benefits – not only to your community, to you as well.
Many studies by healthcare organizations over recent years find that the majority of people who volunteer feel healthier and less stressed; they also report a greater sense of purpose in life and enhanced work and people-related skills.
Some Corning departments and employee resource groups have traditionally supported specific non-profit organizations as team volunteers. If groups are your favorite way to volunteer, check with your supervisor or a resource group that interests you.
Of course, you can get started on your own, too. Search for a list of eligible non-profit organizations in your community that are in need of volunteers. (And be sure to start logging your hours in the Dollars for Doers Program.)
If you know of another organization that needs volunteers, please contact the foundation.
