VOLUNTEERING: HOW HELPING OTHERS HELPS YOU

Volunteering has a positive effect on your community — and it’s good for you too.

Giving back to your community is valuable in itself, but helping others also offers many benefits. No matter how young or old, it can help you learn more about yourself and even put you on a path to your future.

Parents with young children are increasingly making volunteering a regular part of their routine.  The benefits are enormous. Volunteering teaches compassion, empathy, tolerance, gratitude, and community responsibility.  And children who volunteer are more likely to continue doing so as adults.

Here at Southern Manna Soup Kitchen, Adia and Esme are loved by all.  Those precious smiles put a smile on our faces!  Thank you Adia and Esme for being a part of “our family”!

Would you like for your children to volunteer at the soup kitchen?  If so, contact Debbie Bise at 276-429-2139, or stop by the soup kitchen on Friday’s any time between 9 am – 2 pm.
