- It reminds your company that you're about more than making a buck.
- It opens your eyes to the needs of people in your local community.
- It demonstrates that you can do something to address those local needs aside from just writing a check. Don't get me wrong - writing checks is important, too. But volunteering provides a tangible and deeply immediate way to contribute to your local community.
- Regular volunteering allows you to form a relationship with an organization so that you can progress to providing more skilled types of volunteer assistance. Not that there's anything wrong with packing food for hungry people or painting lockers in a school, but as you get to know the organization and they get to know you, you have opportunities to contribute skilled AND unskilled labor.
- It feels great!
