The importance of volunteering

I grew up in a family that believed in community service.  My dad was in the Army Reserves and was a volunteer firefighter and helped out with the American Legion.  Also my mother helped with the American Legion Women’s Auxiliary.  My brother, sister, and I grew up in the Scouts (Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts), which all incorporated the importance of community service.  We also grew up going to church and Jesus said we should “seek to serve, not be served”.  I hope some of these resources help you help make the world a better place.
