So often you hear about volunteering around holiday time. But volunteers are really needed all year long. Did you know that helping others has benefits for you, your family and your community? Studies consistently show that helping others boosts our happiness, is good for our mental and physical health, and promotes social connections. Additionally, researchers have found that helping others enhances education, may result in unexpected financial benefits, and spurs others to acts of kindness and generosity.
With our busy lives, it can be difficult to find time to volunteer, but our staff have been excited to help out their favorite charities. Ronald McDonald House sponsors a local golf outing which we wholeheartedly support, and local food pantries have been the recipients of employee generosity. Before being moved from Springfield, our staff volunteered countless hours with the LPGA golf tournament which supported many Springfield charities. We have enjoyed our experiences and have learned that doing even small things can have a big impact on others.
Our employees are honored to have the opportunity to contribute to the community!
