How Donating & Volunteering Will Improve The Community
CEO/President of YSMF
We've come up with four simple ways that donating and volunteering can improve the community. There are different aspects of how we can improve the community through service. Safer communities are built by bringing people as volunteers together. It’s also healthy socially, by promoting communication between groups that might not usually come together, but will for the greater good.
Volunteering and donating also builds bridges between small businesses, large corporations, local, state, federal governments, citizens, and residents. Think about the many changes that can occur, and the power that can be harnessed, and the equity that will be established to further rebuild and improve on America's decimated communities. When these sectors combine ideas, capital, resources, and strategy to accomplish goals the results are very beneficial.
How Much Money Are we Talking?
There are several nonprofits that partner with various sectors to advance the community. For instance, Habitat for Humanity. Which is a global nonprofit housing organization working in local communities across all 50 states in the U.S. and in approximately 70 countries.

Volunteering helps to increase voter turnout and spurs political participation. When citizens are engaged change happens rapidly! When you start connecting and socializing with the local people you become more involved in the policies that created the problems or solutions. Volunteering also brings empathy for your fellow neighbors and that translates to better care, healthcare choices, and more funding for those in need in the community.
