Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteerism is one of the most selfless acts that we can become involved in. “Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.” …Leo Buscaglia
