It’s hard to imagine where we would be without all the hard working individuals with altruistic desires to donate their time and energy to a good cause. This energy is a part of what keeps our wheels rolling towards positive change. Anything from writing blogs to hands-on in-office help, our volunteers boost and help carry our strategies.

According to the Corporation for National and Community Service Americans can be very generous with their time when it comes to volunteering. Their 2015 report states that 62.6 million adults (that’s almost 1 in 4 Americans) volunteered through an organization. These wonderful people put in nearly 7.8 billion hours. Service to others is an important virtue, and these numbers confirm the commitment of ordinary people to extraordinary action.
