ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Two impassioned volunteers discuss the benefits they have experienced by donating their time and efforts.

The benefits of volunteering are enormous to everyone,  including the person who is giving the gift of their time and effort gratis. The right match can help the volunteer reduce stress, find friends, reach out to the community, learn new skills, and even advance their career. Giving to others can also help protect a volunteer’s mental and physical health.

Two dedicated volunteers for local childhood development programs shared their stories of inspiration and gratification.
