    Making Life Meaningful – Volunteering

    Purposeful volunteering not only impacts others, but also you, when you find that “right fit.” Volunteering gives back to the community and makes a difference to the people around you. No amount of service is too small. Kevin Engel-Cartie, from Volunteer Siouxland, will discuss the positive aspects of volunteering, and how to locate those opportunities that match your skills and interests. The discussion will also include the benefits volunteers receive from their commitments.
