Getting involved in your community is not only good for the community but it is also good for you. Studies have shown that when you volunteer you reduce stress and are healthier. You also gain experience, increase your personal growth and improve your self-esteem all while building a strong, healthy and vibrant community. Whether you are an individual or business like us you have a chance to give back and to make a difference. It creates a sense of pride for individuals and businesses in so many ways.
Start simple by volunteering on committees that give to the community, or, if you have the fortune to donate pick causes you are passionate about. Royal LePage Stalco Realty enthusiastically contributes either directly or by giving to local organizations like the Rotary Club. This helps support kids sports, develop recreation facilities, enhance cancer research, increase the arts, help people out of poverty through Habitat for Humanity and the list goes on.
So, get involved in even a small way and you will be amazed at how good you will feel while helping your community.
